Here’s the official show description:

Fresh off of his last album becoming the #1 best seller in iTunes comedy, Ben Rosenfeld returns to record his fourth live stand up comedy album. Join Ben as he makes light of being a Russian Jewish immigrant in today’s America, his experiences as a new dad and surviving two car crashes.

2019 Comedy Goals

For the past ten years, I set goals at the start of the year and then review how I did at the end of the year [see 20182017201620152014, 2013201220112010 and 2009]. I’m not sure if this is actually useful, as the goals have been pretty similar the last few years and I only look at this post the first and last day of the year, but I like traditions, and maybe it helps subconsciously, so here go my goals for this year.

I’ve put “process goals” (aka things I can control) in black, and “goal goals” (aka thing that depend on other people as well as me) in grey text. There’s an extra line break in between the two.

I have the same number goals this year as last year (15) and then whittled down my top 5. If I nail 3 out of these top 5 goals, and don’t achieve a single one of the others, I’ll consider it a very good year.
