  • There's a clip of Kevin Eldon's new BBC Two show already, incredibly. BBC
  • 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
  • And in our top 100 we covered 80-61 yesterday. New to this? You'll need our intro, 100-81 and ten to watch; 60-41 up 'in a bit'.
