Is Dave Chappelle shooting for a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records? The 34-year-comedian has broken his own Laugh Factory endurance stat. Previously six hours and seven minutes set in mid-April, Chappelle took the stage Sunday and made audiences chuckle for six hours and 12 minutes.
"Dave was determined to keep his record because he recently heard that Dane Cook was planning on trying to break (his) record," club owner Jamie Masada said Monday.
Masada said Cook held a record of three hours and 50 minutes in early April. The mark had stood at two hours and 41 minutes, set by Richard Pryor in 1980.
Chappelle told audience members he's been traveling, most recently to Ecuador, Masada said. He joked that he'd been studying Spanish over there so he could return to the U.S. and speak the language properly. Asked by one audience member to cite his most embarrassing moment, Chappelle responded, "Other than being called a crackhead by Newsweek?"
