I now have watched 24 hours of continuous stand-up comedy without napping, dozing or otherwise passing out from exhaustion.

Our host, William Stephenson, has just told the audience that this not only will be a record-setting show, but also "the best f#%&ing comedy show in the history of the universe." Methinks our host needs sleep even more than I do. Or we better have an incredible 26 hours in our futures.
