Come the middle section, it seems like an audience which doesn't have me booming with laughter in it, is even less hearty than I'd like it. As a result, I too had my work cut out, and I was dealing with an audience that had already been warmed up.
I think it went well enough. Sometimes a gig can just be tricky. Still, I know I was amused while I was on stage. Also, I was able to hold my head up high and face the people I'd invited to come along and watch. I think that's the main measure of the gig.
