sleep at night.
- Susan Murray at the Underbelly

Is it fair to say that there'd be less litter in Britain if blind people were given pointed sticks? - Adam Bloom at the Pleasance

The world is a dangerous place; only yesterday I went into Boots and punched someone in the face. - Jeremy Limb, at the Trap

Hey - you want to feel really handsome? Go shopping at Asda. - Brendon Burns at the Pleasance

I enjoy using the comedy technique of self-deprecation - but I'm not very good at it. - Arnold Brown at The Stand
