how do u get previous coments to show up.i was trying to send amessage to robyn gallagher but it looks like i sent it to dom christie.its freaking me out.
oh that was meant for robyn someone,but im still not very good at using these sites.oh well.
i only ever come accross u bitching on web sites.introduce yrself one day and stop hiding behind yr pen.
ok.well.my six minutes at the 1st laughs was half new,but i think in those kind of gigs your better off doing a mixture of old and new.my show however,that damien did not see, has been running anywhere between 1 hr and an hr 15.shows are supposed to run for 50 minutes.i think about 20to 25 minutes of material in the show on the 1st night in wellington was old but that became less by the end of the week.
im selling nearly double the tickets i sold last yr so the majority of the crowd is new.i always take that into account when im doing shows.
given the show could be 50 minutes but im going over time then i would say 45 minutes is new ,which is a fair whack.
what i have learnt is that it doesnt take too many old gags before it creates old material issues.
what i would say is ,given most or 90 per cent of the 50 minutes is new think of the rest as a bonus for the people who havnt seen me.i used to and still love it when a comic like fleety does a favourite,but thats just me.
to russel brown,the only gag i used in rove that wasnt mine was dean butlers kebab gag.i asked him for it yrs ago and he said fine.thats fair enough.anyone who suggested otherwise is a liar or wished they had been on the show.bb
