Hey, I've got a bunch of jokes from this new set I wanna put on YouTube. But do you think its dumb to put all my jokes online? Or do you think its better to put more up there?
my take on that: i'm more worried about people never hearing my good jokes than i am about them hearing them too much. but you could always just put up a few if you're worried.
i wouldn't do whole 15 min set. pick 5-10 min solid set that you can use for getting gigs or sending to industry.
then if you want to split up addl jokes and post those individually, that's cool too. any one who watches all those will be super fan anyway. as long as ya have some new jokes, how much can they complain?
if that's too much of a pain, just do one big one and leave it at that.
also, you don't need to promote on your own site if you're worried. you can just post and email it to people who you want to see it. if random others discover it, than no big whoop.
Of course, depends on how much material you have and stage of your career. If you're about to record an album or something, a different approach might be a good idea.
