2) with regard to this specific scenario, i do honestly feel that writing a great but potentially mean joke about someone who ends up not being there would be an unfortunate waste, or too mean to do. so, better to wait and see who's there, from one perspective.

3) comedian logic is just a subset of human logic, i would say. (but that could be my non-human comedian logic talking.)

PS you're welcome, and thank YOU!
