Subject: RE: I need some honest advice
Humour is a funny business.
It is predicated on what went before and what comes after.
Compilations like the video cut across that.
It might be better to have a series of videos and let the viewer choose when to "cut" between them. If they aren't going to stay with you, they aren't booking anyway. Explain why you have several videos rather than a compilation. Mood!
I find songs where any word has to rush is ill fitting - if you are going to be laconic, be laconic. Rushed words have comedic value, but usually as over the top excess.
For the videos pick your material carefully.
And a lot of humour is of the moment. And that moment is in the club, not in aspic.

I found my very clever wordplay entertained the songwriter (me) but banana skins get the laugh.
