We can’t resist a good bit of wordplay here at Time Out. Just look at the TO blog – it’s full of pun-ridden headlines!
The absolute master of the quick-fire one-liner is Tim Vine. He’s the punmeister general, firing out gag after gag at such a rapid pace it’s difficult to keep up.
So, to celebrate the release of his new book, 'The Tim Vine Bumper Book of Silliness: Daft Jokes, Crazy Pictures, Utter Nonsense' (published by Orion Books, priced £12.99), we’ve picked 51 of our favourite Tim Vine jokes, selected from his previous stand-up shows and bumper book of puns, ‘The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book’.
