Another one of those "acoustic" gigs in the streets. I like my comfort zone and a full set but I'd do almost anything to bring life into anything that could quite possibly become safe and boring. Anything for comedy!
If you really want that "typewriter" click on your kick drum use the side of a guitar amp. In need of warm bass overtones? Sit on a bass amp (and press the mute button with your butt)! Looking for no sustain on your ride cymbal - use a crash on 90° angle! And all this live on national TV. :) Best thing - sounded great on TV.
