The Set List at the Pack show is now in it’s second year, some 75 shows in, and has become somewhat more gratifying to produce over time. A major reason for that is collection of regulars that show up each week for another shot at playing our game.
I usually think of Gangbusters! as the more fun show to produce because I get to go on stage and do stuff, but almost every week we start from scratch in front of a new crowd. That show is like a stone in a river, becoming smoother and more elegant. Set List, in contrast, is still growing more elaborate. Over Jason's real and pretend objections, I continue to add new embellishments so that I don't get bored. Anyway, all this to say that the current storyline has something to do with me being on tour and running the show remotely. This check-in segment is definitely not the one I would have started with, but life on the road is a complicated thing.
Historical footnote: Phil Binder is the comedian best known for his extensive work in the medium of Facebook, in which he pretends to have been turned into a dog.
Set List at the Pack is a completely improvised stand-up show that happens every Thursday night at 10:30, at the Pack Theater in Los Angeles, CA.
