Los Angeles Brings Home the World Record for the Longest Continuous Stand-Up Show Ever from New York City
HOLLYWOOD — Dec 10, 2010 — For Immediate Release — On Monday, December 6, the World Famous Laugh Factory began hosting the longest continuous Stand-Up Comedy performance ever. The Guinness World Record of 50 hours, set in New York City in 2008, was broken Wednesday afternoon at 4:38PM while comedian Dom Irrera, star of the hit cable series, Supreme Court of Comedy, was on the stage and the show continued until 10pm the following night putting the new record at 80 hours. “Los Angeles is the entertainment capitol of the world and I have always felt that record that belonged to Los Angeles,” said Laugh Factory owner, Jamie Masada. The show kicked off on Monday at 2pm with comedian Paul Rodriguez doing a 40 minute set, and was followed by Tom Arnold, Dave Chappelle, Maz Jobrani, Jamie Kennedy, Natash Leggero, Paul Mooney, Kevin Nealon, and over 200 more of the country’s greatest comedians. The 80 hour laugh-a-thon concluded with Tim Allen, performing for an hour. The Santa Claus star lived up to his reputation and arrived with 10 full boxes of toys for underprivileged families. The event had a comedian on stage around the clock for 80 continuous hours. There was also a special section designated for those wishing to attempt to set a record for the most “enduring audience member” which Katinka Holiday achieved by watching the show for 76 hours! Ms. Holiday said, “Laughter is the best medicine and I figured this was better than getting a flu shot.”
