Olga Koch shares with us the top 10 things that make her laugh ahead of her new show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Skateboards are funny because you can put a dog on one and then put sunglasses on the dog and then put the dog on Instagram and pay for computer school.


Eggs are funny because when a chicken has her period, my ex is like “put it in my mouth!”, but when I have my period he’s like “put it in my mouth!”


Did you know that they’re just snails?! Wish you guys told me that before I ate a whole crate of them! Thanks for nothing! They’ll take forever to metabolize! (Get it, because they’re snails? Keep up!)

Memes about wine

I love memes that are all like “my doctor says I need glasses” and then it’s like a picture of 6 glasses of wine, and it’s funny because whoever made that is clearly suffering from addiction and I hope they get the help they need.


Yoghurt is funny because it’s a delicious totem of womanhood and it makes me giggle when manly boys are too afraid to eat it when they eat ass any day!

Subliminal messaging

I think it’s so funny that some people think that if you played a Beatles record backwards, you’d hear a hidden message. It’s funny what people can come up with sometimes - *secret messages hidden before our very eyes* - who would do such a thing?


Nothing makes me laugh as much as a really good death hoax. I faked my own death back in ‘13 and though I missed 5 of my niece’s birthday parties, I’m warmed by the thought that I really got those dumb motherfuckers this time.

She has her moments. She has this whole bit about eating too much escargot, that kills usually.

Windows XP Startup Music

I laugh every time I hear the Windows XP Startup Music, because I think “damn, I’m old” and also “shit, I should really buy a new computer”.


It’s funny that the creators of that emoji intended for it to be a high five, but people interpreted it as praying hands. It makes sense though, because a high five means you have friends, but I don’t have any, so I’m praying for some.
