Essay #2: Experiment
Here's something different. One night early on in the summer, I sat down at my 'lap'top computer and typed up an experimental stand-up routine. I don't know what possessed me to do it. And naturally, it will never be performed... except here. Yes, for the first time ever at The Will Matheson Web HQ, you can hear me talk. =)
There are two things I don't like about my short routine. First of all, it sounds weird just hearing me talk and laugh without hearing someone else chuckle, or preferably many people chuckling. So laugh real loud and hard, okay? The second issue is content-related... looking back, I feel that I left a few gags unexploited. Oh well, gotta leave something for the next recording. =) Enjoy.
