Get ready to laugh...it’s the 15 best stand-up jokes of the year ‘I farted in a lift... it was wrong on so many lev­els’

Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By RACHEL SPENCER

IT’S been a funny old year for co­me­di­ans in 2011 – with many of them get­ting in hot water for telling jokes too near to the knuckle.

Frankie Boyle turned him­self into a hate fig­ure for mak­ing nasty re­marks about Jor­dan’s dis­abled son Har­vey, jok­ing about her and ex-hus­band Peter An­dre fight­ing over who would have to keep him.

Jimmy Carr up­set peo­ple with a joke about Downs Syn­drome chil­dren, say­ing: “Why are they called Sun­shine Va­ri­ety coaches when all the kids look the same?”

Then Ricky Ger­vais caused up­roar when he put snaps of him­self gurn­ing on Twit­ter ac­com­pa­nied by phrases like, “good mong­ing,” “two mongs don’t make a right,” and “my favourite drink is toi­let.”

Ob­vi­ously those jokes are far too out­ra­geous for us to re­peat, un­like these best gags of the year.
