I started going at it. Getting you know getting strong again. Getting my My muscle memory back in my chops together. Getting my calluses back for doing the stand up comedy at the nightclubs and then i did four shows. over the course of four thursdays in july dynasty typewriter. So once i got my calluses back. I just started doing the big riffs. Big riffing our twenty our twenty five working through the new material new thoughts the pain the glory the the confusion all of it dumped it into the big our riffs and then like as per how i was trained as to how as per how i came up. You know when you got the shit going. How do you tested out. Well you got to go to a comedy club. Look man comedy clubs honestly are still the best place to see. Stand up comedy you know once we polish it and it gets to a theater. It's a different thing. There's no frenzy. It's a it's a set piece for the most part a little room for a little riffing but for the most part you when you're out of theater you want to present the good thing the whole thing. The polish thing the thing as it comes together in the clubs. Sometimes you don't know what the fuck is going to happen. You try to seek. What's it ordering adnew. But i gotta be honest with you man. I hadn't been at a comedy club in a while over a year now. There's always been the way. I've done it man you'll work it out in the clubs and since i've been able to do theaters take it to the theater. And sometimes you work out more theater. But mostly it's in the trenches. And i had feelings had some feelings man i spiralled a bit after my thursday show and speaking of spiraling w t.f with mark mariners sponsored by better help online therapy people are trying to put their best foot forward during these tough times.
