My set list today doesn't look anything like what I imagined it would when I first got this gig. The introspection and advice have done me well and I feel I've got an accurate cross-section of who I am represented across six minutes.
The challenge is some of these bits have been in mothballs for years and the order is something new to me.
Now comes the practice. The boring, repetitive, suck the life out of the joke while you are hard-wiring it into your subconscious practice. Failing the ability to work it out on stage, it's old school rehearsal in front of the mirror time.
