Comedian Wins Award for Greatest Joke at Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Published

on

Masai Graham is the happy 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival winner of the funniest joke award.

With a straightforward but timeless pun involving pasta, the comedian astounded the voters.

Voting for the Dave’s Funniest Joke of the Fringe award is open to the general public.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, this is the first time the award has been given out.

Graham has won Dave’s Funniest Joke of the Fringe for the past two years.

“I tried to steal spaghetti from the shop, but the female guard saw me and I couldn’t get pasta.” goes the prize-winning joke by Masai.

In 2016 he received that significant honour thanks to an equally humorous prank.

“My dad suggested I register for a donor card – he’s a man after my own heart.” read his prior entry.

Masai expressed his delight at being named the Fringe’s best jokester once more to the BBC.

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is my spiritual home, so it’s wonderful to see it back in action, he remarked.

When I learned that I had won the Dave’s Funniest Joke of the Fringe title once again, I exclaimed, “This is getting spaghetti joke.”

He took advantage of the opportunity when it presented itself.

However, if you’ve ever wondered what the funniest joke in the world is, read on. Avoid even blinking.

On his YouTube channel, Gregory Brown talked about it and claimed that the world’s greatest joke was actually based on a 20-year-old study.

In 2001, Dr. Richard Wiseman, a psychologist, created the study through the website LaughLab. Over the course of a year, he invited 1.5 million participants from all over the world to score five jokes that were randomly chosen from a database of more than 40,000.

“Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses,” was chosen as the winning entry.

“His eyes are glassy, and he doesn’t appear to be breathing.

“The other guy reaches for his phone and dials 911, exclaiming, “My friend is dead! What can I do?”

“There is stillness followed by the sound of a gun, and the operator adds, “Calm down, I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.

“Back on the phone, the man asks, “OK, what happens next?”

Fair enough, that’s really hilarious.

Whether or not it is the funniest joke ever depends on the person.

Published

on

‘Money’ Mayweather is renowned for his enormous wealth; according to Forbes, he is thought to be worth $285 million. The legendary boxer has stated that he wants to own an NBA club and that he has already made a sizable offer for one.

A Huge Announcement

In recent footage from an unidentified event, Mayweather was seen being interviewed and confirming that he has made a first offer for majority ownership of a team. He did not specify the team in which he had already expressed interest, but he did state that he would be open to either buying an expansion team in Seattle or Las Vegas or examining any current franchises that might be for sale.

Some Top Prospects

In response to the question of whether this was Vegas, he said: “It could be the Vegas franchise, it could be the Seattle franchise, or I could be buying a franchise that’s already up-and-running. The first offer, we offered them a little over $2 billion for majority ownership. Do I have it? Absolutely, absolutely I have it.”

Mayweather reportedly earned $65 million earlier this year after competing in a boxing match in Miami against YouTuber Logan Paul. Indeed a big sum, and we believe we have a good idea of where it might be going soon.

In Breakthrough Role in Wolf of Wall Street, Margot Robbie Believed No One would Recognize Her

Published

on

Robbie is currently one of the most in-demand performers in the industry, almost ten years after the successful movie’s US debut. In a recent interview, actress Margot Robbie stated that she believed no one would take note of her in the pivotal part in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Wasn’t Really Expecting

She has starred in a number of box office hits, but the 32-year-old Australian actress never imagined she would achieve such renown after her triumph on the beloved soap opera Neighbours, which she returned to for the final episode in July. Robbie acknowledged that she didn’t expect anyone would recognize her in The Wolf of Wall Street in an interview with The Mirror.

Some Initial Thoughts

“No one’s going to notice me in this film,” Robbie thought at the time, “It doesn’t matter what I do in this film because they’re going to focus on Leo and I’ll just slip under the radar.” At the age of 22, Robbie had to perform her first-ever nude scene for the movie, which she admits wasn’t the easiest.

The Wolf of Wall Street undoubtedly enjoyed great success, earning enormous sums at the box office. For her performance as Naomi Lapaglia in the Leonardo DiCaprio movie, Robbie won the Empire Award for Best Female Newcomer. Since then, Robbie’s her career has flourished and she is now one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors.

The most popular streamer on Twitch, xQc, has lost his position.

Published

on

By

The most popular Counter-Strike: Global Offensive streamer on Twitch, Félix “xQc” Lengyel of Canada, has recently lost that title as a consequence of a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competition. Currently, Alexandre “gAuLeS” Borba is in charge.

De-crowning moment

On a constantly changing platform prone to huge changes like these, one can only rule supremely so much.

The Brazilian streamer has been active in esports for the past 20 years, which may surprise you. His involvement on the scene has led to agreements with the NBA, Nike, and the Formula 1.

Initially, Borba played Counter-Strike professionally before focusing on leading his own teams, g3nerationX and MIBR.

He took a few years off from his job to pursue a degree in marketing, then returned to esports in 2010. In 2015, he successfully relaunched the g3x brand. Players like Gabriel “NEKIZ” Schenato, Lucas “steel” Lopes, and Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe have benefited greatly from Borba’s experience and advice.

With his ability and co-streaming from the stadium itself, Borba dominated the coverage of the CS:GO IEM Rio Major last month.

Although the Brazilian streamer has already gone to the top of the most-watched list, Dexerto believes it is improbable that he will do it again. Lengyel streams frequently and plays a variety of games, whereas Borba’s ascent is reliant on occasions like this tournament.

Even his room-cleaning stream, where the audience critiqued the enormity of the filth and the fact that he didn’t know how to do his laundry, attracted tens of thousands of views from viewers.

So, based on that, it appears that Borba might have the upper hand if he flaunts an immaculate home and a mastery of detergent varieties.
