Liverpudlian comedian Adam Rowe won the recent ‘Dave’s funniest joke of the fringe’ at the Edinburgh Festival with…

"Working at the Jobcentre has to be a tense job – knowing that if you get fired, you still have to come in the next day."

There seemed to be a number of employment related jokes in the top ten including…

"I've got a new job collecting all the jumpers left in the park at the weekends, but it's not easy. They keep moving the goalposts" – Darren Walsh

"I had a job drilling holes for water – it was well boring" – Leo Kearse

Whilst Adam’s creative whit won himself this prestigious award, losing your job is no laughing matter.
