    I said my shirt made me look like a black man with excema. You'd probably need to see the shirt to get it.

    Jokes about race are just not on in a comedy club.

    Oh yeah, myself and one of the other chaps were asked to come on the radio to do our material whenever we wanted. And Comedy Ireland are going to offer us gigs too so it really went well last night.

    I saw a guy in a wheelchair with terminal cancer do standup once. It wasn't pretty.

    So I have a question - as a stand up, do you have basically a fully prepared script for the set which you stick to? Or a number of maybe 9 or 10 sotries and you choose maybe 5 or 6 depending on how it's going?

    I always wondered how scripted and rehersed it is, as generally it seems to be so natural. Did you reherse much?

    Congrats by the way! :D

    I had 3 or 4 stories cos we only had 7 minutes each and then in the carpark during the interval game up with like slight extensions that I'd use if it went well.
    I think I'd practised my set out loud maybe 3 or 4 times, but I came up with quite a bit at about 3am the morning of the competiton.

    The chap that went on first scrapped his set the night before and decided to do improv based on crowd suggestions.
    Had to leave because he was dying so badly. Very unfortunate.

    Well done to you. Sounds it was far less painful than the other fellas.

    Bill Bailey repeated some advice that Bob Mills told him when asked about the secret of comedy.

    Keep saying funny things.

    Not a bad rule probably, if you just keep that in mind then you'll strip out all the unnecessary stuff. I really enjoy Woody Allen's stand up album, every word he says is needed. It's not fast paced but just lean.

    @Adam_T,
    I saw Gina Yashere do the same 20 minutes two years apart. Almost word for word. Lazy but hell she obviously got good return on that 20 minutes piece if she could still flog two years later.

    There was a show on 'little' people a while back.
    But this one woman decided to use her height as a stand up gimmick.
    Her first joke was
    'I know what you're thinking: Check out the tits on the five year old!'

    :)

    Good luck buddy, if you killed like you said you did you should be fine.

    It's good to have the nerves, it's when you don't when you should worry.

    I couldn't do it. I have enough trouble being funny in the company of my friends, let alone strangers :(

    Open with a daterape joke, then Angela Lansbury, Italian Tv, Stupid questions on tests, stupid people on the net and callback to Angela Lansbury. All nicely linked together too. The chap who won was fantastic and really deserved it.

    Excellent, although went a little flat in the car-material section.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    One of my mates is a comedian, he's a big bloke (20 odd stone), and his opening line used to be:

    "Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Let me just answer the question on your minds right now. Yes - but only once."

    "And she died"

    Yeah, I was happier with that part the first night, but I was way more nervous last night.

    Just to follow this up a bit, I'll be on Nationwide on RTÉ1 whenever it's on next. I was interviewed and my set was recorded.

    Also, I'll be at the Kilkenny Fringe Festival.
