2022 Comedy Goals Revisited

On January 1st, 2022 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, grey text are goals not fully in my control and bold text is how I did. 

Stand-Up (4.25 out of 6 accomplished)

  • Write 20 new minutes of “album-worthy” material
    Yes. I wrote more than 20 minutes of new, useable material
  • Record and release my next comedy audio/video special
    Yes. I recorded my next comedy special. The audio is done. The video is in final edits. It will be released March 31, 2023. This counts as complete.
  • Do 300 live performances
    Yes. I performed live 526 times, not counting the game show or virtual comedy
  • Do my gameshow 20+ times (virtual or in-person)
    Sorta. Did the game show 14 times, counting this as .75
  • Perform at 50+ private events (virtual or in-person)
    Sorta. Did 32 private events, counting this as .5
  • Double my TikTok account to 500,000 followers and 20 million likes
    No. Did not come close to doubling my TikTok account. I “only” added 17,000 followers and 1.2 million likes. Which somehow makes it feel like my account is on life support

Writing and Producing (2 out of 4 accomplished)

  • Pitch our various TV projects to at least 5 networks/production companies
    Yes pitched projects to five places
  • Film, edit and release one short film/tv pilot that is at least 8 minutes in length
    No. Did not create any long-form content
  • Write one new script
  • Create one new, full-fleshed out TV idea (with treatment and sizzle or a script)
    Yes. Created multiple new treatments.

Learning (.5 out of 1 accomplished)

  • Read 12 books
    No. I read six books. Half credit.

Financials (0 out of 1 accomplished)

  • Earn $60,000 of revenue from comedy/entertainment-related endeavors


My Top 3 Goals (2.75 out of 3 accomplished)

  • Record and release my next comedy audio/video special Yes
  • Do my gameshow 20+ times (virtual or in-person) 75%
  • Pitch our various TV projects to at least 5 networks/production companies Yes

    Overall notes: I’m pleased to have mostly accomplished my top 3 goals. I accomplished 6.75 out of 12 goals for the year. I fell most short in writing a new script (but did multiple treatments) and not releasing any long-form content (but released a bunch of short form videos). Of what I could control, I accomplished 3.5 out of 6 goals. So while not a perfect year, progress was made and experience was gained.
