Episode structure

1. Recording of a guest comedian's joke/bit from a live gig.

2. The guest comedian tells us where the initial idea came from, how they developed it, when they first tried it on stage, how it went, when it began to feel solid, what other directions the joke might have or will take, if they are trying to say anything with it, how they feel about it, when it works best, and, what can prevent it working.

3. They may share ideas for another joke that is still in development, and tell us where they want to take it.
