How was your experience?
i wanted to love wyatt's set, but his stage mannerisms really affect the tone of the show. he takes time to think about his jokes, often referring to his notes (i think this is fine, but he seems to pretend he's not doing this by constantly looking down - and that is just plain distracting!). also, since we're used to seeing him on the daily show and connecting with his eyes, when he wears a low cap and continually looks down, he really loses that audience connection. with faster pacing and more eye contact, i think it would have been a great set. i also loved susan beforehand - she has great stage presence and energy.
