Set #15: Red House Tavern

The more I write these... the more I feel like Doogie Howser (a character on a popular 80's television program of the same name who was famous for typing a journal entry at the end of each episode).

That being said, I had a good set at the Red House Tavern in Canton, MD.  The twenty-three minute set was comprised mostly of new or newer bits but also featured a few old bits that I'm trying to polish for a feature run next week.  Most of the new stuff worked including a bit I finally nailed after trying for the third time this week. With the exception of dropping/forgetting a few lines, it felt like a very solid set.

The biggest downside for me was how much time I did... Everyone on the lineup was doing 8-10 minutes and the room runner told me to do as much time as I want.  As much as I love doing time, I felt bad and didn't intend on going that long in the middle of the show.  I wish I would have done a shorter set or gone long at the very end of the show.  It just felt like an asshole move and rude towards the other comedians (who I apologized to individually). 

Overall, it was still a good show and everyone did well.
