Does anyone know if Jerry's standup act this year was any different from the past two? Because I went the past two years to the Fox Theatre in Detroit to see him, and his material was exactly the same.

He was really the first standup act I have ever seen so I am not sure if it is normal for standup comics not to change their acts for a while or what. I was just wondering.

You mean, the convention to mix stand-up clips within the episodes?

Or, you mean, his stand up altogether?

Well, in either case, I strongly disagree. They did less and less of it probably to shorten the length of the episodes.

I got to see his stand up in Toronto just a few months ago, which by the way was absolutely amazing. If you rent the documentry Jerry made called Comedian, then you can get more insight on what comedians have to go through with their material.
Based on what I remember though, it is typical for comedians to repeat their material.
Although a year in between the times you seen him sounds like a long time to stick with EXACTLY the same material, it's understandable. Also from the documentry, we can see Orny Adams showing us all the material he performs depending on the type of audience. So I think that you seeing him at the same place both times also may influence what material he does.

Anyways, I suggest just renting Comedian, it's actually quite interesting.

I like his act. His new act. I went to eight of them and they were pretty much the same. But the coolest thing is , in every show he puts something original in it. Something you don't see in ney York , what you've seen in Chigago , for example.
