Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"A charity for people with Tourette's syndrome has asked a comedian to apologise for his award-winning joke made at the Edinburgh Fringe festival.

"Tourettes Action said it was "so disappointed" by Swedish comedian Olaf Falafel's gag, which won Dave's "Funniest Joke of The Fringe" prize."


"Falafel won the award with the gag: "I keep randomly shouting out 'Broccoli' and 'Cauliflower' - I think I might have florets"."
