I have a thirty minute set to deliver at a festival tomorrow (followed by a 20 minute set at a different venue elsewhere on the site).
I’m loving the opportunity to do a 30 which does not happen very often, as well as challenged as to how best structure an arc of material, and create space for some more playful interaction. All the more challenging when I do not know whether the venues will be comedy-friendly or a weird standing space only with audience members wandering in and out (and while I’m creating Nightmare scenarios in my mind, all with noise bleed from bands playing nearby).
Really looking forward to it.
A protocol dilemma though?
I am booked to do a 30 minute from 10:30 til 11pm at one venue then a ’20’ at a venue 5 minutes away at 11.15. The dilemma is that if venue 1 is running late do I do the 30 but be late for venue 2, or do I shorten the set to be on time for venue 2.
I’m overthinking again *laughing*
