There’s an intriguing event happening “uptown” tonight at Joe’s Pub. The Universal Record Database (URDB.org) is hosting the World Record Apprecition Society in an evening of “eclectic performers setting unique world records.” The show description notes: World records set at previous events have ranged from ‘Most Cocktail Umbrellas Fit In Hair In One Minute’ to ‘Tallest Drawing Of A Midget’ to ‘Most Bananas Fit In A Pair Of Pants At Once.’ URDB are regular guests on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and host thousands of unique records on their site.

“Our live events bring out a mix of individual bravery, group participation, hilarity, surprise and all-around general chaos,” says URDB co-founder and event host Dan Rollman. “We’ve seen everything from a wedding proposal to the world’s tallest carrot cake to 12 women standing on top of a man rolled up in a carpet.”
