When:   June 3-5, 2008
Where:   The Comic Strip Live
1568 2nd Avenue
New York, New York 10028
Price:   FREE
Type:   Party

 Starting on Tuesday June 3rd at 8:30 pm and ending on Thursday, June 5th at 10:30 pm, Comic Strip Live will set the Guinness World Record for the Longest Stand Up Comedy Show.  For 50 continuous hours, there will be laughter without end with the country's brightest stars shining on stage.   
Audiences can expect over 100 professional standup comedians to grace the Comic Strip Live stage. Some will be up and comers with a few years of solid NYC stage experience, most will be seasoned professionals.  Sets will run from 20 minutes to hours long.  Comic Strip Live has offered an open invitation to Dave Chappelle & Dane Cook to finally settle their "longest individual stage time" competition during Comic Strip Live's 50-hour world record show.   
For the entire 50 hours of the world record attempt, there will always be a professional comedian on stage, an audience, club & wait staff and, of course, non-stop laughs.  On each of the three nights (June 3 to 5) from 8:30 pm to 10:30 pm, Comic Strip Live will still have their regular weeknight stand up shows as part of the record.  Outside of those times, and while setting the record, audience members can stop by whenever they want (free admission), for as long as they want to watch comedy while being treated to a bevy of free bagels, chips, popcorn, donuts, coffee, sodas and energy drinks.  Additionally, on Wednesday and Thursday from 7:00 am to 10:00 am, free breakfast will be served.
In addition to setting the world record, this event will also allow Comic Strip Live to raise money for the USO. This will be done by selling sponsorships and accepting donations throughout the 50-hour event.  100% of the monetary donations received will be donated to the USO.  Also, the 50 hours of comedy will be edited down and the USO will play it for the soldiers both in the US and oversees (part of the Armed Forces Network).
