The first set.
I filmed the performance so I could watch back what worked and what didn't. It's interesting because when you're on stage it's hard to remember how the audience are reacting. The most obvious reaction is when there is no reaction, but other than that I found watching back the footage very insightful as I couldn't have told you how much people had laughed and at what.
It's very exciting piecing together the good material. I enjoy being critical of my work, it's satisfying to say 'that one is a keeper, that one is never going to be heard again'. In time I will have a stash of quality material that I will be able to use to create a winning set. Then some time after that I will have twice and much, then I just need to double it again and I have a show!
