Dave Chappelle tried hard to set the record for longest standup routine in the history of LA’s Laugh Factory comedy club, but his attempt was ruined when he had to take a bathroom break.
Five hours into his routine on Sunday, he walked away to tinkle and was disqualified, club owner Jamie Masada told the Associated Press.

The audience wasn’t happy, Masada said, but he insisted that rules are rules where endurance comedy is concerned.

“There are only two rules,” Masada said Tuesday. “You have to continuously tell jokes that are funny and you can’t leave the stage, even to go to the bathroom.”

So as it stands, Dane Cook holds Laugh Factory’s comedy endurance record with a 7 hour, 34 minute performance last year. The late Richard Pryor set the original record, 2 hours and 41 minutes, in 1980. Cook broke it 27 years later with a 3-hour, 50-minute set.

Chappelle raised the bar to six hours, seven minutes before Cook took the record back last year.
