** Not long after being named the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate; a corruption scandal threatened to sink Nixon when he was accused of having a slush fund, with the scandal being serious enough to lead to his potentially being dropped from the ticket. Nixon then took to television to deliver what became known as the [[http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/richardnixoncheckers.html Checkers speech]] (named after the name of a dog given as a gift for Nixon's young daughters that Nixon emphasized they were keeping), and the controversy saved his career after it was revealed he was in the clear[[note]]It was later revealed that the campaign of Democratic Presidential nominee, Illinois Governor Adlai Stevenson II, had a ethically questionable "miscellaneous" fund account of his own[[/note]].

* John Mulaney comments on this in one of his bits. He mentions how he was RaisedCatholic and was an altar boy in his youth. A hush falls over the audience and he comments on how everyone views being an altar boy as this crazy thing after the child molestation incidents in the church.

* David Gest, a music producer and celebrity contestant on numerous reality shows, was set to host a concert tour before he died in April 2016. The name of the tour, the ''David Gest Is Not Dead But Alive With Soul Tour'' was a humorous jab at a fellow contestant on ''Celebrity Series/BigBrother'' who thought he was dead.

* When Amy Winehouse was a guest on ''NeverMindTheBuzzcocks'' some of the jokes told by Simon Amstell included: "you want us all to sit here while you drink yourself to death?"
