26 Jokes A Minute!

9th March, 2015

Mr Greenaway has recieved the official certificate declaring him the record holder!


According to The Telegraph, a comic has broken the world record for telling the most jokes in a minute - taking the humourous title off a German.

Clive Greenaway managed to say 26 one-liners in 60 seconds in front of a live audience to claim the record.

Although the 57-year-old fell two jokes short of the 28 he had hoped for, it was still enough to outdo rival Markus Weise by five jokes.

Mr Greenaway spent a year practising for the record and his act was so well-rehearsed that he was able to rattle off one joke every two seconds.

One of the strict Guinness World Records' rules stated that the live audience of 250 people had to laugh to each joke, or the gag would not be counted.

Officials spent six months studying the video footage of Mr Greenaway's act to make sure there were sufficient laughs for every joke and the chuckles were genuine. Mr Greenaway, from Poole, Dorset, has now been sent an official certificate declaring him the record holder.
