Stand-Up Comedy Explanations

I just got back to my hotel room in New York after seeing a Tuesday night standup show at The Stand. Every Tuesday, they produce a show with top talent. Tonight, Janeane Garofalo was there. And she wasn’t the funniest one. 

I tried to explain the jokes to my friends who thought it was an interesting thing for a guy to impetuously pursue solo on a work trip. I remembered the premises. I rememebered the punchlines. For a couple of them, I even remembered the tags. 

Nothing. Turns out, the magic is being there.
