Comedian Tim Vine won joke of the year award at the annual Lafta awards this month, but those of us who think that having sore eyes is a far from a laughing matter might appreciate some of his older jokes.
Mr Vine, who is the brother of BBC Radio 2 presenter Jeremy, has won the award for the best joke at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2010 with the line: “I’ve just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I’ll tell you what, never again.”
And he was also runner-up in for the Edinburgh joke of the year last year with the line:
“Crime in multi-storey car parks. That is wrong on so many different levels.”
If you want relief from sore eyes try some Clinitas soothe but to find out more about the Lafta awards see.
