The Aristocrats

This documentary has to be one of the crudest, most offensive and vile films to ever be put to DV, but it's also one of the funniest flicks I've ever seen. It revolves around a classic joke called 'The Aristocrats' that most of today's comedians are familiar with, and each one tells their version of it. The joke starts with "A family walks into a talent scout's office..." and ends with "What's the act called? The Aristocrats.". The middle part of the joke is what matters, and each of over 100 comedians gives their own personal spin on what the 'act' is. be it incest, bestiality, brutal violence against midgets and violations involving bodily fluids/body cavities. Some versions of the joke that are featured fall flat, but 90% of them are side-splittingly hysterical, namely Gilbert Gottfried's and Bob Saget's. I highly recommend it, but only if you have a high tolerance for profanity and vulgar descriptions of all sorts of perversity.
