I felt as if I wasn’t going anywhere with comedy and was sick of reeling out the same stuff. I couldn’t find the time or motivation to write a new set. I knew I’d benefit from writing a whole new ten minutes but never sat down to write it. I probably lacked a bit of confidence too, was worried that it wouldn’t be any good. I tried out material in a few open mike nights which was more comedians than audience and didn’t find that helped much. I think having a mentor who listens and critiques my set and helps me tweak it to its best is invaluable. Thanks Louise, it’s been great.
