The world famous and world’s LARGEST arts festival hosted in Edinburgh each August produces some cracking comedic performances.  In no particular order, here are some of our favorites from 2017.

“I broke up with my first girlfriend because she didn’t believe in me. Which was ridiculous, because she was the imaginary one.” Ben Fogg

“If I had a pound for every time someone accused me of having body dysmorphia I’d have enough to buy the new nose I need.” Lauren Pattison

“I went to a really rough inner-city school. The kind where chances of being bullied grew exponentially every time you use the word ‘exponentially’”. Aatif Nawaz

“I once took to the stage as Hamlet, which really annoyed the rest of the cast of Mamma Mia.” Thunderbards

“My parents have been married 40 years. I don’t know how they do it, they make it look so hard.” Carmen Lynch

“Whenever someone says ‘I don’t believe in coincidences’. I say ‘Oh my god! Me neither!’” Alasdair Beckett-King

“My uncle told me it doesn’t matter what you achieve in life, as long as you’re happy and you can afford your own bed. That’s the last thing he told me on his deathchair.” Glenn Moore

“It’s so weird that Americans say ‘eggplant’ when they’re called chickens.” Ian Smith

“I like to think the guy who invented the umbrella was going to call it the ‘brella’ but he hesitated.” Andy Field

“I was a lazy kid. When I was twelve my parents entered me in a national apathy contest. I came second. I wasn’t that bothered. The kid that beat me didn’t even turn up.” Ben Fogg

“The key to a happy marriage is in a bowl with a bunch of other keys.” Tom Houghton

“A lot of older people wonder if there will be life after death. There is, of course – it just won’t involve them.” Lee Nelson

And finally, this year’s favorite joke of all (according to the Dave’s Funniest Joke of the Fridge Award) from Ken Cheng: “I’m not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change.”
