Get a slice of the Scottish festival in Melbourne

Three comics are hand-picked from last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe show off their laffspersonship.

“So, the Ashes – what was that, eh? But I have to say, you Australians got your own back in pretty spectacular fashion by sending in Shane Warne to fuck Liz Hurley. As cultural responses to losing a sporting event go, that is amongst the best I have ever seen.” Jimmy McGhie

“I have a theory that you naturally smarten up with age. It’s the only explanation for why old people wear such smart pajamas. You know, with a breast pocket and a collar. Where are old people going in their dreams that requires this level of dress? I’ve never been denied entry into a dream because I was underdressed.” Carl Donnelly

“I broke up with my girlfriend about six months ago. I had to break up with her: she dumped me.” Stuart Goldsmith
