Does your standup have any retro stuff in it Pete? I've seen a youtube vid that didn't.
I don't think I've ever touched upon retrogaming in my stand-up. Maybe a few asides when I've been a compere, none of which I can remember now, but, no. My natural stand-up centres around online pr0n and awful politicians. The character act I'm doing to support Laura's show has a bit of politics in it, then lots of jokes about bad sex and Britain's drinking culture.
To do stuff on old computer games in front of an audience where there'll be anyone from the ages of 18 to 70 is a bit of a gamble. I'd love to, but it's nice to have strong reference points. This is why I'm looking forward to launching my YouTube channel, where I'll be doing some quick gags about the games I'm playing, little throwaway sketches and daft observations.
