Comic Strip Marathon: Post #44 T-minus 1 hour!

Almost there…almost there…stay on target…stay on target. We have put 49 hours of continuous stand-up comedy in the books here at Comic Strip Live, leaving one final hour to reach the finish and a potential Guinness World Record. Christian Finnegan has already performed, and the rest of this finale bill features Lisa Landry, Ted Alexandro, Rich Vos and Judah Friedlander. The house is packed and laughing heartily. Everyone is in high spirits, including many of the club staffers who have worked with little sleep, the host William Stephenson who’s had barely a couple of naps, and, of course, myself. We shall not be denied this prize on this...

If you’re playing along with the home game, you’ll know that means I’ve been awake now for 15 hours Tuesday, 24 hours Wednesday and now 19 hours Thursday which totals…58 hours. That doesn’t look or sound healthy at all. I will sleep very well tonight. That much I can assure you. For his part, Stephenson continues to keep the show rolling on time and introducing all of the comedians along with a quip or two. As Cory Kahaney takes the stage just before 7 p.m., she says: "I’m not going to ask you to clap for William…he’s really just doing this for the stage...
