Stand-Up Comedy Post Mortem: Yuk Yuk’s Calgary, December 2, 2009.

So, what did I do and what did I learn from tonight’s 5-minute set?

I opened talking about women and mental illness and then tried out two new pieces about men and stupidity, specifically genital piercing and steel testicles. Closed it all with the bits about Ducks Unlimited and prostate health (not in the same joke).

I learned which angle is best for me to approach the piercing bit, and I learned that the tag I used for the testicles bit might not be as strong as I first thought. Also in the area of Educating Timmy, I reaffirmed that if you open with proven material and close with your best material, you can screw around in the middle and have fun with the new stuff with time to save it all in the end and go out with a bang.

Couldn’t stay for the whole show, which was disappointing, but 4:30am comes much too early for me to be spending a ‘school night’ out in the club.

That’s it, that’s all.

Ciao for now,

TR.
