Default Chappelle's comedy stand up show lasts 6 hours!
Dave Chappelle breaks Los Angeles comedy club endurance record - 6 hours plus

Tue Apr 17, 10:37 PM EST

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Now that he's back on the standup circuit, Dave Chappelle has a lot to say.

The comic, who walked out on a US$50-million deal to continue his TV show and briefly took a respite in South Africa, shattered the Laugh Factory's endurance record by taking to the comedy club's stage for six hours and seven minutes Sunday.

"He was absolutely amazing, for six hours making people laugh," the club's owner, Jamie Masada, said Tuesday.

Masada said the previous record of three hours and 50 minutes was accomplished earlier this month by Dane Cook. But until then the mark had stood at two hours and 41 minutes since Richard Pryor set it in 1980.

Chappelle walked out on the third season of his hit Comedy Central show last May, leaving fans and industry observers to question his motives and even his sanity.

He has said since he didn't feel he could be himself on the show.

"The bottom line was, white people own everything, and where can a black person go and be himself or say something that's familiar to him and not have to explain or apologize?" he told Esquire magazine.

He has since returned to the standup circuit and released the documentary "Dave Chappelle's Block Party."

wow, he must've had a helluva lot to say!

I heard about that earlier today, that is a lot of comedy and the people definetly got there moneys worth. Cause the average comedy show for one person is an hour and a half or 2 hour show. Thats a lot of material and he must have had them really going. I applaud him for that and I hope he continues to get back on track.
