URDB Live @ Joe's Pub - 4.21.10

The Universal Record Database held its friendly and spirited monthly live show at Joe's Pub on Wednesday. A wide variety of astounding records were set, but which will stand the test of time?


--Box office profits and $525 dollars worth of items auctioned during the show were donated to the Boys and Girls High School basketball team of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn who can be seen here setting a URDB record on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last month.

--The MOMENT OF THE EVENING belonged to birthday boy, Paymon Parsia (pictured above), who successfully snagged the Most People To Kiss One Person At The Same Time record. Also in that photo: the hand of Opus Moreschi giving a thumbs up.

--CollegeHumor's Jeff Rubin attempted the record for Most Trivial Pursuit 90's Edition Movie Questions Correctly Answered in 60 Seconds but he was answering them so quickly I think he more accurately set the record for Most Trivial Pursuit 90's Edition Movie Questions Correctly Memorized in 60 Seconds.  Judges??

--Late Night's warm-up comedian, Seth Herzog, was pumped and gunning for The Most Audience Members' First Names Rhymed in 30 Seconds By a Dude in a Wonder Woman Unitard. As the clock started, Seth was immediately derailed like a night train off a scenic bridge when he called on some guy who might as well have been named Orange. This unfortunate opening stumble ate 20 seconds of time, leaving the door wide open for every other man dressed like Wonder Woman to go after Herzog's glory. Stay home, people with names that are hard to rhyme!

--MESOTHELIOMANIA: Joe's Pub's parent company/next door neighbor, The Public Theater, had notices posted on their entrance warning theatergoers that asbestos is going to be removed from the space. Oh good!
