Dave Chappelle breaks his own record of standup endurance

Dave Chappelle holds a new record.

The 34-year-old comedian, who broke the Laugh Factory's endurance record by taking to the stage for six hours and seven minutes in April, topped his record by telling jokes for six hours and 12 minutes on Sunday.

"Dave was determined to keep his record because he recently heard that Dane Cook was planning on trying to break (his) record," the club's owner, Jamie Masada, said Monday.

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

Chappelle, who walked out on a $50 million deal to continue his hit Comedy Central show last year, told audience members he has been traveling, most recently to Ecuador, Masada said.
