Humor Truly International !!!
Comedians from round the world have gathered to attend and participate in the Edinburgh's Fringe festival. It started on 7th Aug and will go on till 29th Aug.

"Humor is invariably translatable. It is all about recognition and surprise, and stand-up comedy is the last bastion of free speech," .

American comic Dave Fulton told
Reuters after mocking fellow Americans as much as the rest of the world in his high-octane gig.
While making fun of Americans, this is what he said about America's relation with India and China.

""We cannot go to war with India -- we would have no one to connect us to our bank when we ring. And we can't go to war against China -- where would we get our trainers from?"

It reminds me of the time in Australia, when i went to see the
'Melbourne International Comedy Festival'. It is one of my best experiences in the Oz Land. They had really good stand-up comedians along with humourous small skits and plays.

Wish we had something on these lines in India. However i do enjoy the
'Great Indian Comdey Show' on Star One, which i think is no less compared with the american show 'Its a Mad Mad World'.
