I did eight minutes last night at the 11th Street Lounge last night. It wasn't a great set but it wasn't a complete disaster either. The crowd was really tight and pretty much every comedian struggled. My biggest problem was connecting with the audience. The self deprecating stuff didn't get laughs. Anything remotely dirty got groans instead of laughs. I felt like I couldn't win.
That all being said, I didn't give up and my closer got a big laugh. I wish I got more laughs but all things considered...I got enough not to kill myself.
