Scotland can be pretty funny.
You see cows as hairy as the contents of a hairdresser’s bin bag, and learn stories more unbelievable than a low-fat deep-fried mars bar.
But what makes it even more hilarious is the local sense of humour.
And the best place to discover the chuckle-some jokes is at the Glasgow Life International Comedy Festival. The festival is on from 9th to 26th March 2017, and boasts 479 shows across 50 venues. What’s more, a lot of the shows are the perfect compliment to our day tours from Glasgow.
Here are 10 of the best tweets from some of the comedians that are performing.
