The Best of the Comedy Festival

It’s Comedy Festival time in Melbourne, and I’d really like to clone myself so that I can see everything.  Thankfully, The Age has saved me the trouble and delivered the 50 best one liners from the stand up comedians participating in the festival.  Here are some highlights!

I got in a lot of trouble the other day for calling someone a “retard”. You can’t use the word “retard” now. You have to use the proper word and say “my ex-husband”.

How ironic is an iron?

I’ve spent the day watching pirated DVDs of Underbelly. I don’t support piracy, but I really needed to get out of jury duty.

“The Herald-Sun’s Andrew Bolt” is a complete anagram of the words “bland lout answers the herd”.

Talking during a comedy show is like farting during an orgy; it sorta ruins the magic.
