* In Creator/ChrisRock's 2008 stand-up show ''Kill the Messenger'', he criticizes John [=McCain=] for always saying that he was a war hero for being a POW, saying "I don't want to vote for nobody that got captures, I want to vote for the motherfucker that got away". In 2015, UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump got in hot water for dissing [=McCain=]'s claims and saying that he likes "people who weren't captured".

** Regarding Savile, there's a very weird comedy sketch used in the Northern states of ''Mexico'', of all places, during the 90s, since Savile was basically unknown outside the U.K.: In the streets of Mexican Northern states (like Durango and Coahuila) an unknown comedy troupe tended to put fake Wanted signs in the streets about a fake serial rapist named ''Tio Manguerolo''[[note]]Manguerolo is a deformation of ''Manguera'', who is a Mexican slang for ''penis'', ''Tio'' mean ''uncle''.[[/note]] who claimed to had raped women, men, children, the elderly, [[BestialityIsDepraved animals]], [[ILoveTheDead the dead]], [[RoboSexual robots]] and even ''aliens''. The harsher part came with the fact Savile became a well known figure worldwide two decades later, not only because he was a pedophile, but also it was recently discovered he did ''exactly'' raped from children to the elderly and even the deceased, and while we can discount the fact he could had raped aliens and robots, the bestiality part could be not so farfetched in any case, just because animals ''cannot be able to talk'' to accuse him post-mortem.

* One of Jeff Foxworthy's comedy bits involves commemorative NASCAR plates. "That's Dale Earnhardt. He wasn't in a wreck or nothin'. That's just some ketchup on his face." Kinda funny...until the 2001 Daytona 500, when Earnhardt gets killed in a crash.

** In his last special, ''Weapons of Self-Destruction'' in 2009, Robin joked about [[AIIsACrapshoot his GPS mistakenly telling him to turn while crossing a bridge]], saying "No can do, [[Literature/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL]]... Not that depressed, really." Not so amusing after he committed suicide in August 2014.

** Related to Californian deserts, the 2010s droughts lead many people to compare the state to Kinison's famed "YOU LIVE IN A FUCKING DESERT!" routine.

* After ''TheChaser'' was pulled for two weeks following a particularly offensive sketch, the next show they aired showed them doing good things for the community, including: Closing Scientology down for good, getting rid of all the Andre Rieu [=CDs=] in the world, and ''Taking Kyle Sandilands off the air permanently''. Four days later, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyle_Sandilands#Lie_detector_radio_segment this happens]], although, most Australians would argue that this doesn't count, as Mr. Sandilands really is an asshole.

** Another aneurysm moment on ''Titus'': On the episode in which Shannon (Titus's sister) reunites with her Swedish boyfriend, Stefan, Titus tells her not to do it because Stefan wanted her to have an abortion to get rid of the baby (which already died when she had a miscarriage), but Shannon goes with Stefan anyway because she wanted to stand up for herself and make a decision that she knew was right. In ''Neverlution'', it's revealed that Shannon committed suicide because her boyfriend kept breaking up with her and the constant rejection pretty much drove her crazy (and nothing about it was funny, not even in a dark way).
** In the episode "Houseboat," one of the Neutral Space[[note]]That black and white room in which Titus speaks to the audience and shows flashbacks and "what-if" scenarios about his life[[/note]] moments has Titus holding a present and telling the audience that his dad finally understands that love and forgiveness is better than hatred and vengeance, then adds, "Next year, we'll teach him that heart attacks are not like women; you just can't keep having them." According to ''The Fifth Annual End of the World Tour'', Titus's dad really did die of a heart attack.
*** Also, in the same episode, the flashback of Dave (as a child) reviving Ken after the paramedics pronounce him dead from a heart attack by opening a can of beer (with Ken spitting out the beer because it's warm, then hitting on the female paramedic operating the defibrillator). In fact, ''all'' of the references to Ken's heart attacks (especially the first season finale "Episode Eleven") are considerably less funny in hindsight.

* Creator/ChristopherTitus's first two stand-up specials[[note]]''Norman Rockwell is Bleeding'' and ''The 5th Annual End of the World Tour''[[/note]] (and the original first episode of his sitcom ''{{Titus}}'') both have bits in which Christopher gushes over how wonderful is girlfriend Erin is (especially compared to the briar patch of psycho-bitches he dated in the past, including the abusive Noelle, who, like Titus's violent, manic-depressive schizophrenic mom, had a high IQ, was said to be beautiful, and often snapped and abused Titus for little or no reason). Fast forward to ''Love is Evol'' and ''Neverlution'', in which Titus and Erin (renamed "Kate" or referred to as "my ex-wife" for legal reasons) are divorced and Erin turns out to be no different than the psycho-bitches Titus dated -- in fact, Erin was worse: She cheated on Titus with two men (one of which was a 60-year-old man who was richer than Titus), stole her children's college money so she could get plastic surgery, drank excessively, tried to kill Titus in front of his daughter, [[DrivenToSuicide goaded him to kill himself just like his mom and sister]], and committed perjury in court by claiming that Titus was abusive ''just so she can take him for everything he had''[[note]]California is usually a "no-fault divorce" state, meaning that if a couple divorced, everything they own is automatically split down the middle. However, if one spouse claims that the other abused him or her and/or their children, then everything the abuser has becomes property of the one who claims abuse[[/note]]. The only good thing to come from this is that Titus now has a girlfriend (Rachel Bradley) who actually loves him and who comes from a functional family.

* In a few episodes of the podcast ''U Talkin' U2 to me?'', the hosts Scott Aukerman and Adam Scott make several comments about the "death" of comedian Harris Wittels. They were jokingly referring to him as dead, since in a previous episode he had expressed his dislike for the band U2, the subject of the podcast and favorite band of the hosts. Wittels in reality died of a drug overdose a few months afterward. A new listener could easily mistake the order of events, as Aukerman and Scott, in their typical very dry sense of humor, even discuss how sad his "funeral" was.
This list shows the last 10 events of 170. Show all.
