Comedian wants to break the world record for the longest stand-up performance

David Scott (aka Midnight Swinger) is a nationally known comedian in Dubuque, Iowa who tries to break the world record for the longest stand-up comedy routine. He wants to perform for 41 hours straight.

He will be on stage with nothing but a chair and a microphone and with no material prepared. He doesn’t have an off limits topic and he’s wide open joking about childbirth, babies, current events and politics.

You might say it is easy to do a stand-up for 41 hours but, beside the sleepless nights, no bathroom and no food there are many more challenges to come with this record. He must stay inside a marked yellow box so judges from Guinness Book can watch him through a web cam.

He is allowed to take a 5 minutes brake per hour but, the most challenging thing is that he can only repeat a joke once every four hours.

"I just want to survive this right now. If I can survive this, I believe I can survive an audit but the I.R.S.“says Midnight Swinger.

If he can do this there’s no assurance that he will break the record if there is no audience. There must be at least 10 people at all times.

The comedian says he will find a joke for everyone in the audience even for the local news crews.

Midnight Swinger joked, "There's Joe Winters at the Barbeque Round Up. What's the Weather going to be like Joe? I don't know but these ribs are good."
