Nick Stoeberl showcases all 10.1cm of his amazing tongue to snap up his tongue-tastic record. Prepare to be amazed by the longest tongue in the world!

Twenty-four-year-old Nick Stoeberl from California, USA has well and truly got the world record longest tongue licked.

The artist and comedian’s super-sized lingua has been verified as measuring 10.1cm (3.97in) long from its tip to the middle of the closed top lip and is featured as one of the latest records set in the new Guinness World Records 2015 book.


Nick’s father was “a huge fan of KISS” and as a child Nick would imitate Gene Simmons’ infamous tongue pose, realising for the first time that his tongue was longer than others.

The artist and comedian loves the attention his tongue receives, announcing that “I’m not only able to lick my nose, but also my elbow!”


He says that the only downside is “that I have to spend longer brushing my tongue in the morning.”

The achievement breaks the record of Brit Stephen Taylor (9.8 cm) who has held the title since 2002.
