Norwegian comic Daniel Simonsen has won this year’s So You Think You’re Funny new act competition.
His deadpan set, which included tales of him working as a hospital porter and how he gets nervous socially, wowed a panel of judges at the Edinburgh Fringe.
He wins £5,000 and a trip to Montreal's Just For Laughs comedy festival.
About 300 hopefuls had entered the regional heats, with a series of semi-finals held at Edinburgh’s Gilded Balloon. Under the rules of the competition, none could have been performing stand-up for more than a year.
Judges at the final included Johnny Vegas, Melbourne Comedy Festival director Susan Provan and Bruce Hills of Just For Laughs.
