This might be a dupe. If it is, post the link so Sylvan can move it into this forum.


The Aristocrats (also known as The Debonaires in England) is a joke which is alleged to have been told by numerous stand-up comedians since Vaudeville, and often only among an audience of other comedians. In publicity for a 2005 documentary film about the joke, it has been referred to as "the world's funniest joke" and "the world's worst joke." It may be either depending on who's telling it, who's listening and the innumerable variations upon the theme. It has probably never been told the same way twice.

The joke is something of a game in which the participant or participants try to top each other in terms of shock value. This was also used as an inside joke by comedians to test the mettle of others. Throughout the history of the joke it has evolved from a cliche staple of the Vaudevillian comedian into a postmodern anti-joke.

Plot Summary for The Aristocrats (2005)
Comedy veterans and co-creators Penn Jillette and Paul Provenza capitalize on their insider status and invite over 100 of their closest friends--who happen to be some of the biggest names in entertainment, from George Carlin, Whoopi Goldberg, Drew Cary to Gilbert Gottfried, Bob Saget, Paul Reiser and Sarah Silverman--to reminisce, analyze, deconstruct and deliver their their own versions of world's dirtiest joke, an old burlesque, too extreme to be performed in public, called The Aristocrats.

Aperently at one of the roasts that was broadcast he bombed with a joke about 911 and said the hell with it and followed up with the aristocrats .

I'd like to see Bob Saget's version. I hear he is the absolute complete opposite of his "Full House" image when it comes to his comedy... considered by some to be one of the nastiest comics. I never knew that so I'm curious to see how true it is.

Did you ever hear Bob Saget's line from Half Baked?

"Marijuana is not a drug. I used to suck dick for coke."

I've heard the same thing about his comedy, very far from his Full House and America's Home Video's cheese.
