not breaking the jinx

I got knocked out of the Laughing Horse competition tonight, at the quarter-final stage.

Which brings us back to where this blog started a year ago.

It’s annoying because I’m so much better at this now than I was then.

Still. It’s my own fault; I started well, then took a risk on a bit of new-ish material that did really well on Thursday; but it turns out that it’s one of those bits of material that either kills or, if it doesn’t fly, just leaves me standing there shouting. And, for whatever reason (partly because I rushed it to try and fit a seven-minute story into four minutes) it just didn’t fly tonight. So I ended weak. And so the three guys who did good, solid sets went through.

Still. This is how it goes. If you gamble, sometimes you lose.
