.02 Percent of Tommy Tiernan’s 36 Hour Plus World Record Set

Filed Under Stand-Up Comedy

In an age of video or it didn’t happen, it’s a natural that Tommy Tiernan’s recent Guinness World Record breaking stand-up set this past Easter would be filmed. The Irish comedian went for 36 Hours, 15 Minutes. You don’t get much of a suggestion here of what kind of show Tiernan put on or if any of the audience did the same marathon with him in this clip, but it has a cute little punch at the end.

There’s some audience footage out there on the YouTubes but it doesn’t really give a sense of what the show was like either. Hard to sum up a storyteller like Tiernan in a two minute clip, even more so when he’s doing a 36 Hour Show.

Any word on who the previous record holder was. I thought it was Florida comic G. David Howard, which we learned during 2007’s six hour plus Dave Chappelle / Dane Cook sets. But his record was 16 hours and the video pretty plainly states 24 hours as the previous record. Was there somebody in between?

The UK comedian Mark Watson has delivered a 24 hour show at the Edinburgh festival on 2 or 3 occasions. I wasn’t aware that this was a world record though.
