I’ve been using an online dating site called Plenty of Fish recently. Many of the women complain that guys message them for sex, including the ones who don’t even have a picture up.
That said, some of these women only have themselves to blame…
Looking back, I wish that there were more people in the crowd when I was on stage. About 20 people filed in as soon as I got off, but those are the breaks!
I love this joke because I’ve always been afraid of having a long build-up, because if the final punchline doesn’t hit, I will have bombed….HARD. However, this joke is hitting and garnering an applause break everywhere I’m going (tried it out 4x so far). The best thing about it is that because it hits so well, I can use it to end a set on a high note.
Actually no…the best thing about is that I KNOW THE JOKE WORKS. I was listening to the Joe Rogan podcast recently, and he talked about the joy that crafting a new bit brings. It’s hard to describe the feeling I have when I’m delivering this joke because I know it’s going to make everyone laugh…it’s a feeling of power, but also a feeling of ease and comfort. I take my time to savour the build up, letting the tension build, and as I slowly turn around around 1:05-1:15 of the video I’m listening to the crowd, hearing them chuckle, and know that I have them in the palm of my hands. It’s not exhilirating, it’s not exciting…it’s…I don’t know. I was so, ‘in the moment’ that I can’t recall what the feeling is like…but I want more of them.
UPDATE: I tried the joke again with a full audience at the same location…watch the difference (1:16)!
