In his 2012 Capture Your Flag interview, standup comedian Matt Ruby answers the question "How Would You Assess Your Progress To Date as a Standup Comedian?" Ruby notes that starting out in comedy, he had rapid learning cycles. As his experience grows, he notes how the improvements in his comedy work become smaller and less frequent, forcing him to work harder. This process takes him down the path of killing his own ego and becoming more vulnerable and open on stage.
