As a follow up to my previous post, here’s the audio of my set from the second and final round of Twisted Biscuit. I came in 2nd behind the ever-funny & ever-unique Jesse Elias who performed an amazing self-composed song medley, concisely roasting a litany of Bay Area comics.
[UPDATE: A video of most of this set can be seen here with the password “biscuit”.]
Notes on this track: -[1:17] All of Sal’s set, he’s moving like an confused marionette. The line, “It’s like I’m covered in bubblegum!” is meant to address that. -[2:05] Loren is in extreme pain throughout her whole set. The stage lights start to burn her, so she puts up her hand to shield her eyes. Then her blocking hand starts to burn. Then her glasses feel to heavy for her face. She tries to take them off, but lifting them hurts her hand. Etc, etc, ad infinitum. -[3:36] Samson’s joke was supposed to get a huge applause break, but the recording I tried to play from my phone was really quiet.

" One of my favorite books coming up, was "Great Expectations," by Charles Dickens. Story of a young man, going from ashy to classy, through the help a few influential people. It was sort of a fantasy for me, an experience I yearned for in my own life. It wasn’t until I found myself in a Penthouse over looking the Bay, that I realized, I was no longer Jabari Davis. I had become Pip. Only difference between Dickens version, and my life, is that I’m actually fucking Miss Havisham. “
