爱丁堡艺穗节:在英国的华裔喜剧演员得了大奖

Ken Cheng 获得2017年"大卫最有趣玩笑奖"。

大华新闻网)一句关于新英镑硬币的笑话当选2017爱丁堡艺穗节最佳冷笑话,作者是一位名叫Ken Cheng的华裔喜剧演员。

Ken Cheng的这句话在爱丁堡艺穗节(Edinburgh Festival Fringe,也称“爱丁堡边缘艺术节”)第十届"大卫最有趣玩笑奖"评出的15个笑话中名列第一。

这句话是,"I'm not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change"。

英国最近发行了新的一元英镑硬币,和老版硬币最大的不同是,新硬币用十二角形替代了过去的圆形。

这句英文笑话的意思直译是,"我并不喜欢新的一镑硬币,说实话,我讨厌所有变化。"

Change 一词在英语中还有"零钱"的意思。所以这句话也可一语双关地翻译为,"我不喜欢新的一镑硬币,说实话,我讨厌所有零钱。"

该奖项由公众投票决定,Ken Cheng的这句话获得了33%的选票。本次投票的公众总数为2000人,为了避免名人效应,候选笑话的作者事前并不公布。

获得大卫奖后,Ken Cheng表示,"我感到非常骄傲。作为感谢,我将为我的第一个儿子取名'边缘的玩笑'(Joke of the Fringe)。"

公开资料显示,Ken Cheng是一名出生在英国的华裔喜剧演员,曾获得2015年BBC广播喜剧奖项。他的一些类似于中国单口相声的视频在Youtube上流行,很多表演内容都和英语中的多义词相关。

Ken Cheng的个人推特介绍自己是"一名专业的扑克手,以及喜剧演员"。

英国《卫报》报道称,Ken Cheng 曾经在著名的剑桥大学学习数学,但后来退学成为一名网络扑克手。2015年,他曾入围BBC广播新喜剧决赛。
