This is me at a 3 person bringer. There were about 30-40 people in the audience, 3 of whom actually knew me. And two of them had seen my stand up in the very beginning. I hate myself for not checking the camera setting before hand to ensure optimal lighting.
0m37s Change from “You get to” to “We get to that midnight kiss”
0m44s Note for future reference, pick out a person in a large group to say “you know what I’m talking about” whenever possible, as the rest of the group will usually laugh at the guy. Also try to pick out a guy as it makes my joke make more sense.
1m33s Don’t say “but it’s messed up” anymore.
2m39s My amazon dot com voice needs work as it doesn’t sound consistent from set to set, and the laughs vary as well.
4m25s When I wrote that, I didn’t consider “some people don’t realize there’s some photos you don’t put there” to be a punch line. That either shows how little I know or how great of a crowd it was.
5m05s My voice was off for “It. Costs. Money.” because I got a little interrupted and this led to random laughter. I should’ve gone back a few words, to get my outraged voice back.
6m52s I didn’t pause long enough between “that takes” and “tubes”.
7m23s I love how this punch line either causes crickets to chirp (silence) or kills.
7m39s I learned to wait after “that means that you are.” As that takes people a few seconds to get it.
7m43s I came up with that on the spot and will be using it from now on. “I didn’t mean to give the game away, I’m sorry.”
8m17s For every set where “girl lets you take her out to dinner” didn’t get big laughs, “I didn’t even get any snuggle head” doesn’t get big laughs either. I should adjust on the spot and know to skip that if this occurs (assuming I’m getting good laughs in general).
8m38s That’s by far the best reaction that line has ever gotten. I think my notes on holding the face in previous critiques finally paid off.
9m02s I should start ending good sets by saying “Check out BigBenComedy dot com and have a good night. Thanks” so that my website name doesn’t get drowned out.
Overall: This was one of my best, if not my best, set overall. The fallopian tubes and the website name were the two weakest jokes, so I either need to strengthen them, deliver it a little better or get rid of them. This audience was dying at a lot of other things so they’re trustworthy in judging what works and what doesn’t (unless they laugh at everything).
