I used to love the idea of New Year Resolutions. It was a time to imagine all the good things I would be doing for myself and how awesome I would look or be by the end of the year. I can’t think of any resolutions I actually achieved. So that is why this year I’m working on only ONE resolution for the year which is – after each comedy open mic or show I’m going to make myself listen to my recorded set by the next day.
It’s super hard to listen to an open mic set. The idea is to work on new material or tighten up older material. New material brings lots of chances to bomb. Although bombing is what you should do. Or at the very least – not be afraid to bomb. A lot easier said then done. I have yet to learn to bomb gracefully. I know I need a thicker skin – I’ve heard that all my life. Although I like to think I have developed a tougher attitude – kind of.
