2021 Comedy Goals

For the past twelve years, I set goals publicly at the start of the year and then review how I did at the end of the year [see 2020, 2019201820172016201520142013201220112010 and 2009]. I’m not sure if this is actually useful, especially as the COVID19 pandemic of 2020 made all plans laughable, 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. The ones in grey are not fully in my control.

I’m down to 12 goals (it was 14 goals last year, and 15 the year before). And instead of a top 5, I’ve made a top 3, because so much of this past year has been outside of everyone’s control.
