I've been asked if there are any secrets to remembering your material? Yes there is. Just try to forget your material. You can't. I guess I should say you shouldn't. The truth is you're not're freezing, you're not remembering or forgetting anything... you're simply not thinking at all. The trick is to keep yourself thinking, feeling and expressing on stage.

Here's a mantra for you to assist your memory.... just repeat to yourself...
                                    'Feel through it!'
Tell yourself to feel thru it! Think, but also feel about your material and not anything else. Moment to moment, feel thru it! Feelings don't stop...sometimes thinking does...but feelings just ooze out. ;)

         Here's a couple of other things I do to help my memory.

When doing new material I never overwhelm myself. There's nothing more taxing for your brain than to have 12 new subjects/ bits/jokes you're trying to remember. You won't do ANY of them justice. It's not about the quantity it's about the quality.

Start with just a small amount of new material to perform, maybe one or two things that's it... that way you can throw yourself totally into them and their funny moments. You don't have to have a dozen new subjects, you can have a dozen new jokes about the same subject!  You're more apt to remember that way.

*Keywords! When you do choose to have several new bits to try out give them each a STANDOUT keyword on your little cheat sheet.  A keyword that has a little emotion as well as being descriptive. One that will set you off on the right tangent.

Example: If your dad was a tough old sob and you're going to talk about him maybe instead of simply 'Dad' on your list you put .. 'HARD ASS'!!

Wanna talk about a past love that broke your heart? Perhaps his/her keyword would be HEART CRUSHER!! OR SOUL THIEF!...;)
Make your keyword a real KEY to memory and emotion.

Just a couple of things to feel about. ;)

Included in the trigger system is definitely the crown with the watch. Purposefully significant, it is notably easier to use and by hand wind sit back and watch (in case desired) as opposed to it looks. The pusher to your chronograph is normally in the midst of the top, and that is certainly what this trigger depresses. Without any specific wiggle plus a solid sense, I will consider small size and even refined layout and materials belonging to the chronograph set off system to always be an upgrade across the the past generation for watches. Living along with the dial belonging to the watch for a short time now I will say that i not only appreciate its legibility, but typically the slick design happens to be quite beautiful in my opinion. There is certainly nothing exceedingly shiny as well as polished, and looking through it in several different light scenarios has proven relaxed.

Really difficult to answer due to the number connected with feedback! Intended for illustration, in simply 3 months, last January as we posted all the video properly introducing watches, we had, extra views! in simply just 3 days, We have found seen the best way strong is most likely the impact having a real inventive product. Blending beverages with mechanics has truly stoked a person eye worldwide. If this is true, then that watch does the truth is set itself beyond most scuba diving chronograph watches that would have ones own water weight ratings made up if ones own chronograph things were used even though the watch ended up being submerged.
