Talking about a comedy contest with short sets

Mark went to March Madness the other night. I haven't been.

Me: Is there a secret to doing a good 1min set?

Mark: Yes, short jokes that give the audience a sense of who you are. They want to figure you out in one minute. One woman saying, "I have a kid etc." That's the way to go. Another guy did the "broken family" thing.

Me: Prob good advice for the first minute of any set, eh?

Mark: Yeah, I guess so. Cuz some ppl went up and did observational stuff and it wasn't enough. They wanted a character, the schtickier the better.
