It is Funny but I'm Tired of The Joke

I recently experienced something that rarely happens with my comedy bits. I had a bit that was still relatively new, that was getting laughs, but I got tired of telling the joke rather quickly.

At first, I decided, that since it was still getting laughs that I should still proceed with doing the bit. However, I felt like I was lying to myself when I did. Why should I do something that I don't want to do?

Finally, for the first time this last Thursday at a show at Matching Half Cafe in San Francisco, I dropped the bit from my routine. It felt amazing! The joke I told instead ended up bombing, but I didn't care. I felt relieved.

Tomorrow, comedy returns to 88 Keys Cafe in Morgan Hill. This is the monthly showcase that I produce. We skipped January because it would have been closed to the New Year's holiday. I have a great lineup of comedians scheduled to perform so it should be a great night.
