    If anyone is interested here are some links to both Oscar’s and John’s creative work.

    It most likely does affect how painters or recording artists create. However I’d say that, for example a painter, works on intuition so wouldn’t present something they thought was ‘bad’ because they wouldn’t be happy with it. “You are your own worst critic” comes into play here.

    With recording artists they would have a team of people around to feed off, with loads of different creative inputs, so by the time of release they will have been through an evolutionary process where, much like the painter, they instinctively know the material is good.

    This is why I found Patrick so interesting, he can have that intuitive response to material he writes but will never actually know for sure if it is good until he presents it to an audience.

    Hope this answers your questions.

    Great show guys! it’s safe to say I would not want to be a comedian! Pressure!

    Having said that, if Patrick the comedian has a bad set, there’s nothing stopping him starting from scratch and trying again the next night. Releasing his work is actually part of his creative process it seems.

    What if a painter or recording artists creates a piece and publishes it and its ‘bad’. No taking that back is there? Those artists have to get all their creativity done and dusted before their piece is released. I wonder if that fact affects how they create?
