I recently got a recorder and wanted to test it out and told Horacio I would record his set and give him notes. We were both on the same Showcase in August right before his birthday and I told him I would record it. We never had a chance to go over it but also don't get mad at me talking trash on the recording, it was something we did. Half of these jokes were the first time Horacio ever tried them but you could not tell with how well spoken he was. I was originally going to keep this to myself but thought I must share this little gem. Also that guy laughing obnoxiously is not me its some random guy.
