I did a 16 minute set at Vespucci's in Fairfax, Virginia this past Friday and it went over well. I continued polishing long form bits and used alternate tags on older bits. Due to working on new material, this was the first time I worked on some of my older bits. For the most part, I delivered these jokes well and got a great response.
I followed up Vespuccis with a 19 minute set at the Varsity Lounge in College Park and a 23 minute set at Growlers in Gaithersberg. These were fun shows and the long sets went over well. My new closer/story has been killing and is tying the whole set together in a very nice way. I really liked doing these longer sets and am proud that I did not do all of my planned bits. It has been nice doing 20 minutes without it feeling like 20 minutes. I'm confident that I can go anywhere and do a killer 30 minute set.
