The only downside to performing a feature set, in comparison to host or emcee work, is the video review session.

Since the set itself is 2-3 times longer, watching my performance afterward is that much more excruciating. And in reality, the whole ordeal takes far longer; given a 25 minute set, the review often takes several hours — especially after accounting for all the times I hit pause and flee from the room while screaming “I CAN’T WATCH THIS SHIT ANYMORE!!!”

For the record, I’m not complaining. :) I’m just saying… and maybe I’m also stalling a bit before going back to the video.

On the bright side, most other forms of torture don’t come with a pause button.
