Comedian Nick Helm Had the Best Joke at the Edinburgh Festival!

Stand up comedian Nick Helm has only been performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for two years and already had won the award for best joke for his Snow White gag. The stand up comedian beat better-known acts including last year’s winner Tim Vine to the award created by TV channel Dave.

Nick Helm’s winning joke was: ‘I needed a password eight characters long, so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ The prize was given by a panel of ten comedy critics which spent two weeks scouring venues for good jokes. Their top 30 were put to a vote of 3,000 comedy fans and it looks like the stand up comedian Nick Helm did a great job with his joke.

The top ten list of Dave’s Joke of the Fringe is as follows: 1. Nick Helm: 'I needed a password eight characters long so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.'

2. Tim Vine: 'Crime in multi-storey car parks. That is wrong on so many different levels.' 3. Hannibal Buress: 'People say 'I'm taking it one day at a time.' You know what? So is everybody. That's how time works.' 4. Tim Key: 'Drive-Thru McDonalds was more expensive than I thought ... once you've hired the car...' 5. Matt Kirshen: 'I was playing chess with my friend and he said, 'Let's make this interesting'. So we stopped playing chess.' 6. Sarah Millican: 'My mother told me, you don't have to put anything in your mouth you don't want to. Then she made me eat broccoli, which felt like double standards.' 7. Alan Sharp: 'I was in a band which we called The Prevention, because we hoped people would say we were better than The Cure.' 8. Mark Watson: 'Someone asked me recently - what would I rather give up, food or sex. Neither! I'm not falling for that one again, wife.' 9. Andrew Lawrence: 'I admire these phone hackers. I think they have a lot of patience. I can't even be bothered to check my OWN voicemails.' 10. DeAnne Smith: 'My friend died doing what he loved ... heroin.'
