Comedian Ken Cheng has won the award for this year’s funniest joke at the Edinburgh Festival for a gag about a pound coin.

The one liner – “I’m not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change” – was picked as the best gag by 33% of those who voted.

They got to pick from a shortlist compiled by comedy critics. Here’s the shortlist – you can vote for your favourite.

Previous winners of the award, voted for by 2,000 people, include Tim Vine, Stewart Francis and Zoe Lyons.

Cheng studied maths at Cambridge for a year before dropping out to play online poker professionally.

His big break in showbiz came when he reached the final of the 2015 BBC Radio New Comedy Award.

Frankie Boyle came second in the poll for his line: “Trump’s nothing like Hitler. There’s no way he could write a book.”
