September 22, 2004: Polishing Up at the Studio

This was essentially a reworking of some of the bits I'd been doing for the last few shows, with a little bit of new material and add-ons. But basically, the same stuff. Just better memorized, and hopefully, a little more smoooooth.

(Which basically means, if you've watched the couple of clips before this, then you're pretty much ruined for all this stuff. You've already seen it, so this clip can't possibly be funny. And, you've seen me do it when I really didn't know it all that well, so it wasn't all that fricking great to begin with. You've just ruined both our chances to get something out of this material. Nice. Nice job.

Jeez, the nerve of some people. Watching stuff in order. Tsk.)

Anyway, this show was a lot of fun. It's nice having at least a little confidence that you're not going to go completely blank onstage, forget all your jokes, and have to tap dance for four and a half minutes up there. Sure, your jokes could still suck... but at least you'll get them out there, for the suckiness to be judged by a bunch of half-potted strangers. Man oh man, do I love this job. Meh.

Honestly, though, check out the clip. Even if you've seen this crap before. At least you can see how much fun I'm having, and that's really what we're all here for, right? And now I understand why people don't do an entirely different set every fricking time out.

You know, there might actually be something to this whole 'do material more than once' thing. Maybe all of those thousands of other comics are onto something here. Hmmm...
