As I research, I'm acknowledging that there are many different styles. Joe Wong (the comedian I posted in the video above) is so unique. He's comfortable in his own skin, timing and content. Yet, his unorthodox material works.
A five minute set is not long at all. If I start off poorly, though, it will be very long. Tomorrow, I hope to attend an amateur night. I don't plan on competing but who knows what could happen.
