Comedy Part 721: Hey Guys, It's PB Classic

Location:  Hey Guys Comedy
Emcee:  Will O'Donnell
After:  Nathan Orton
Before:  Josh Schwartzkopf

I've had two longer sets this week, so the following open-mic was usually spent trying to do jokes that I hadn't done in the longer performances.  This was a night of dusting off older material...some of it worked fairly well, other jokes were better off left in the dark corners of my notebook.  I feel like I've learned a lot this week in building my feature-length set and hopefully I will be able to fill that role in the near future.  We had a fun audience tonight and hopefully the club can build a following for open-mic over the next few weeks.
