We’re not saying these performers aren’t funny because, frankly, we’re not overly familiar with their work. And we’re not saying they don’t know these names are totally lame - it may all be an elaborate double bluff. Here’s hoping:
1 Premature Ejokeulation
Ah, penises. Which sometimes don’t work as they’re supposed to. A bit like overly signposted “comedy” show titles.
3-13 August, C, Edinburgh
2 Gagtanamo Bay
Inmates at Gitmo may well be familiar with gags, but probably more of the please-take-this-off-my-tongue’s-going-numb variety.
6-27 August, Royal Mile Tavern
Mental illness puns! Our favourite kind. We love them almost as much as the word “skit”, last used circa 1923.
3-29 August, Pleasance Courtyard
4 Spaghetti Lolognaise
Presumably that’s LOL, as in “usually followed by a face made out of punctuation”, which we’re not going to debase ourselves by doing.
4-28 August, Laughing Horse
5 WitTank (above)
Actually, we quite like this one ;-)
4-28 August, Just the Tonic
