Re: Interesting Show Formats
It's almost invariably a mistake to throw in a 15-minute set before a bunch of showcase sets. Once people start doing long sets, the audience starts to settle in, and reversing gears on them that way is a real problem. It makes the show seem rushed. There's a reason every club arranges sets in increasing order by length -- it's not just something someone came up with and it gets followed blindly. They do it that way because the other way doesn't work.
But other than that... four 8-minute sets plus a 10-minute set plus 15 plus 30 = 1:27. Seems like something that should end up in the 1:30 to 1:45 sweet spot, unless someone runs the light or the host gets talky, so that's good.
Obviously don't run a bringer show. OBVIOUSLY. Come on, you know that.
Erik Charles Nielsen is a moderately funny fellow... right?
