Adele Cliff First Woman to Win UK Pun Championship

Comedian Adele Cliff triumphed at the 2020 UK Pun Championships at the Leicester Comedy Festival, becoming the first woman in its six-year history to do so. Adele tweeted: “I’m so thrilled to be the UK Pun Champion.”

A regular on the top 10 picks in Dave Joke of the Fringe, Adele beat some tough competition but won out with her clever wordplay. She was joined in the final by Chris Norton Walker, Richard Woolford, Stevie Vegas, Philip Simon, Kat Molinari, Iain MacDonald and Richard Pulsford.
