It occurred to me on stage at The Drake in Toronto that it would be cool to do stand-up until the only guy left in the room was some twenty-year-old cokehead who was determined to outlast you. Has this been done?
The last line. Nailed it.
Several comedians have done 30+ hrs. and I believe the record for longest solo stand-up set is held by a guy named Bob Marley who did 40 hrs.
I wonder how much of the 40 hrs. were about how many mishaps resulted from him being named Bob Marley?
Norm MacDonald said it best when stating that the audience should get some kind of prize for sitting through 10+ hours of anyone doing stand-up.
Danny Tenaglia does 12 hour sets all the time and they are fucking hilarious.
I can’t believe I missed this! Fuck.
Big ups to Sniffy.
That was fucking great, just move to stand-up already.
If your ever in the vancouver area and wanna try 12 hours of stand up I’m game to try it too.(I’ve got maybe an hour of okay and 5 minutes of actually funny stuff)I would be down to try for 12 hours because suffering is hilarious.
