The sweet American stand-up, Arj Barker, winner of last year's Perrier Best Newcomer Award, has a mean way with a one-liner. "I'm in love with a philosopher, and she doesn't even know I exist," he moans. "What's worse, she can prove it." Later, he muses that he's thinking of asking his doctor for a prescription for some medicinal marijuana: "I set my car-keys down, and five minutes later I know exactly where they are."
