The Funniest Person in The World

The Laugh Factory in Los 
Angeles invited comedians from around the globe to join its Funniest Person in the World Contest. Here are some finalists:

• In Paris, I am driving a Smart car, you know, the very tiny one. But I don’t do it much, because it’s too dangerous. I could get run over by a pedestrian.    Mustapha El Atrassi, France

• Have you noticed that all bottled water has the “best before” date printed on it? The water has circled the earth for four billion years … 
but now it’s ruined?   Ismo Leikola, Finland

• This is the tenth anniversary of my comedy career. It’s also the anniversary of my father begging me not to do comedy.
Nitin Mirani, United Arab Emirates
