Laugh Lines: Tom Cotter

“Every time I come to Las Vegas, I make a point of giving money to the homeless. I’m sorry . . . topless. I give money to the topless. Don’t drink and gamble while you’re here, folks. They try to get you drunk. That’s why the drinks are free. And then you make bad decisions. Last night I played a cigarette machine for three hours and I don’t even smoke.”

Cotter plays the Wilbur Theatre Friday night.
