It's done. Over. Kaput. Finis. Khallas.

There are a thousand things that I want to say about the show, but some of them are difficult to say without appearing egotistical. So no self-praise, other than: It went better than I could have hoped. Which is something to be proud of.

Tickets sold insanely on the last day. Audience was packed in so tight I couldn't see any empty spaces for even one more person. They laughed at all the right times and even at some wrong ones (I can't believe I never saw the sexual aspect of "rear-ended).

I messed up a few times. Nothing major, but it was there. And once the mike killed a joke.

Got it all on video though. If the sound turns out alright I might make copies for anyone who wants them.

Will write more later. They said some nice things over at Karachi Metblogs and I know Herald, Images and the Friday Times had reviewers there so reviews soon.

In the meantime I'm going to enjoy the fact that I don't have to carry these jokes in my head any longer. No more obsessing over the material. No more studying Stand-up.

Until I can come up with another hours worth of material at least...

Once I get a DVD burned I'll figure out a way to make it available to people who want it.
