When you are rehearsing your solo show for the Edinburgh Fringe and you need to get it under an hour, and you’re first rehearsal is 50:40.73!
That makes me really happy because every time I’ve ever recorded myself in actual performance the time is closer to an hour. Which means either of two things.
- Audiences are laughing for an average of 9 minutes while I perform my set!
- I am milking the fuck out of this show.
I am sure the answer is somewhere in the middle.
I will taking a Myers Brigss technical analysis of preparing this show for Edinburgh. What is a Myers Briggs test? Is that Jung shit that tells you if you’re crazy or, not.
Point is: my show performs at 16:05pm (Edinburgh time zone).
Edinburgh is five hours ahead of the States.
I am rehearsing my show everyday (Monday’s off) from now till opening (August 4th), at precisely 11am everyday. That way my body gets used to performing at the time I will be performing.
However, there is also a train of thought that your body can surpass jet lag, and join the time zone of a new country immediately.
Since that may be true… I will also perform my solo show at 4pm Eastern Standard Time.
That way I’m covered on both ends!
