2021 Comedy Goals Revisited

On January 1st, 2021 I posted my goals for this year. Since it’s the last day of the year, it’s time to go through them and see how I did. 

Black text is the original goal and bold text is how I did. 

Stand-Up (4.5 out of 5 accomplished)

  • Write 20 new minutes of “album worthy” material
    Yes. I wrote more than 20 minutes of material that is usable.
  • Do 100 live performances (and actually enjoy being on stage each time)
    Yes. I performed live 363 times
  • Do my gameshow 20+ times (virtual or in-person)
    Yes. Did the gameshow 22 times.
  • Perform at 50+ private events (virtual or in-person)
    Yes.
  • Double my TikTok account to 350,000 followers and 14 million likes (yes in the year 2021, this counts as standup)
    Sorta. I got the account to 264,000 followers and 10.6 million likes – giving myself half credit for this.

Writing and Producing (2 out of 3 accomplished)

  • Complete the TV version of the gameshow sizzle reel
    Yes. Made a TV version gameshow sizzle reel.

    Mostly. Read 11 books, close enough.
  • Take one class or self-learn one new creative software
    No.

Financials (0 of 1 accomplished)

  • Earn $50,000 from entertainment-related business income
    No.

Misc (0 of 1 accomplished)

My Top 3 Goals (2.5 out of 3 goals accomplished) 

  • Complete the TV version of the gameshow sizzle reel Yes
  • Do my gameshow 20+ times (virtual or in-person) Yes
  • Double my TikTok account to 350,000 followers and 14 million likes Half credit

Overall notes: Given the state of the world and the pandemic stuff, I’m shocked that I accomplished 7.5 out of 12 goals, and nearly all of my top 3 goals.
