Is this Ireland's funniest joke?

Sean Hegarty takes the title

Comic Sean Hegarty has been crowned the winner of a competition to find Ireland's Funniest Joke.

His line: 'Do you think if one Domino's Pizza place were to close down, all the rest would have to follow?’ triumphed over 450 other gags.

The contest had a relatively modest base, however, being run by the  Hardy Har Comedy Club in Bray though a Facebook page that has just 101 followers.  Nonetheless, more than 2,000 votes were cast.

Hegarty, from Lurgan in County Armagh, wins a slot at the Bray Comedy Festival next year.

He said: ‘One-liners are my bread and butter so to now have this recognition and humblebrag over some of my comedy peers is something I'll cherish until the day the World's Funniest Joke competition launches. 

‘It was a bit of a surprise winning as I don't think it's even my funniest joke. Like, just last week I wrote a joke about the biggest pizza ever made, to be honest...I think it's gonna be hard to top that!’

Hegarty has made a number of online videos as his character Rodney and presents a show on Northern Ireland’s Cool FM.
