- The Guardian have done another feature on whether women are funnier than men. COME BACK! There's actually some interesting stuff in here on Edinburgh venues, once you dig a bit. Guardian
- Channel 4 opened voting to find the best of its top 30 comedies. (The answer is Desmond's.) Channel 4
- Katy Brand has written a very strange piece on crowd-sourcing funding for a novel. She's 13% of the way to funding it, is the hook. HuffPo
- Tickets to see Kevin Hart will cost up to £180 at the O2. No word on whether there's a complementary unicorn ride or swan appetizer thrown in for the price. Chortle
