The Edinburgh Festival 2012's Funniest Comics Share Their New Jokes!

The Edinburgh Festival's Funniest Comics 2012!

The sheer utter amazingness of the Edinburgh Festival – which started last week – doesn’t take a lot of explaining.

Basically, it’s the country’s finest comedians performing in a series of random locations across a city where you can drink 24 hours a day. For one whole month.

With that in mind, we thought we would celebrate this mammoth event by getting seven of our favourite stand-up comedians – all of whom are doing brand new shows in the Scottish capital this month – together in a pub for a few beers.

Needless to say, when they started telling us what it is that makes the Festival so great/bizarre/exhausting, there was a fair bit of laughter…

Charlie Baker

Jack Black-a-like (so say the others)

“The last show I did in Edinburgh I was getting drunk most days, partly because I had to down a pint as part of my show. That meant I was on it for pretty much 30 consecutive days. At the end of that, I felt pretty damn ill. I thought my skin was going to fall off. 

I also got punched by an old lady randomly in the street. Well it looked like a punch, so I flinched, but it was actually like getting hit by a marshmallow. She’d definitely been on the Buckfast. I don’t think she’d seen my show, but you never know…”

Festival funny 

“When I had my first kiss, the bloke next to me was getting tossed off. That’s the closest I’ve ever been to being a professional footballer.” 

Charlie will be performing nightly at the Pleasance Below at 7.15pm
