Comedian Masai Graham has been awarded the funniest joke of this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with his one-liner about organ donation.
The comic from West Bromwich, who joins a list of previous winners including Tim Vine, Stewart Francis and Zoe Lyons, won with the gag: "My dad suggested I register for a donor card, he's a man after my own heart."
A panel of ten judges whittled down the thousands of quips at this year's fringe, which were then put to 2,000 people for a vote.
