The Edinburgh Fringe has always sounded really crap to me.

Lot of “have you noticed that some words sound like other, different words” here

They should have to give full disclosure on how they put these lists together. Who was involved, which shows they went to etc.

Nah this is advanced comedy, because it’s got two different cases of a word that is the same as another word but means a different thing. Two!

One of the 10 best jokes at the fringe is that pasta sounds like past her.

Shut it down.

Abolish comedy

Are any of these ten jokes funnier than someone remembering something they ate or watched on the telly in the eighties?

Not just one of the best, THE best.

Has anyone done a marine comedy set called Sarcastic Fringehead yet? If not, you can have that one for free.

You know the problem with electric eels? Try finding a charging point in the bloody ocean.

On one of my dives I was surprised by a large sea creature playing guitar. Turns out it was a busking shark.

This comedy thing is dead easy. Give me two weeks and reckon I could get the whole top 10 on lockdown.

Could get a solid tongue-eating-louse skit in there too. Maybe I should ghost write comedy sets for people with charisma.

I tried to steal a pasty from the shop, but the male guard saw me and I couldn’t get past he.
