The Aristocrats

A ridiculously stellar assembly of comedians (from Seinfeld's Jason Alexander to Chris Rock to Bob Sagat) compete to spin the most taboo-busting variations on the same joke - a classic backstage funny about the filthiest family act in show business. Hosted by the not so funny Penn & Teller.

The documentary - renowned for being disgusting, at times offensive, and very funny - also interviews this list of legends to deconstruct the joke, as well analyze the nature of performing comedy.

As long as it stayed mainstream dirty it was okay, but when it t into perversions the American Psychiatric Society hasn't even named yet, it left me behind.

It's billed as obscene, disgusting, vulgar, vile and funny. Whether the last of those epithets applies, particularly after the first 10 minutes, may be a matter of taste.
