These shows are just a few of the situations you should experience before you consider yourself unstoppable. We talk in this episode about how to handle the comedy show where:

  • only two people show up
  • you walk in as they are announcing your name
  • someone has a medical emergency while you are on stage
  • you are outside, in the rain with no speakers
  • you were asked to extend your set
  • you thought you were the headliner and you are asked to e the emcee
  • you thought you were the emcee and you ended up being the headliner
  • everyone was funnier than you
  •  you were the funniest
  • the power goes out while you are on stage
  • you get an encore – after you’ve done your best material
  • you only do crowd work
  • you do all brand new material
  • you went to watch but ended up performing because someone couldn’t make it

And more!
