Comedian Dave Chappelle walked onstage unannounced at 10:43PM Sunday at West Hollywood’s Laugh Factory — where the infamous Michael Richards‘ n-word infused rant took place last fall — for an impromptu standup set.
It ended at 4:43AM Monday.
He took no breaks, and according to founder Jamie Masada, only about a dozen of the 150 people in the audience left.
Accordng to Variety, Chappelle covered “a multitude of topics during his megaset, tackling everything from President Bush‘s intelligence to Comedy Central’s decision to hype Carlos Mencia after Chappelle abandoned his show for the cabler.”
Chappelle’s record-setting set bested Dane Cook‘s April 10 set at the club, which lasted nearly four hours. (Cook was paying tribute to his father, who passed away the week before.) The previous record was a two-hour, 40 minute set by Richard Pryor in 1980.
