* A 2016 Irish short film contest was won by a group of teenagers whose genre was BlackComedy. As such it was full of these types of jokes, with the crowner being...
--> '''Girl 1:''' My boyfriend's terrified of ovens.
--> '''Girl 2:''' What do you expect? He's Jewish.

* PeterDavison WorkCom Rigor Mortis generally runs on black humour but in one episode a lack of bodies drives the pathologists to dangerous levels of boredom. So much so that they are appalled to hear that a very young patient survived the night and then consoled with the thought that he was small so the autopsy wouldn't have lasted long enough to be interesting. A fatal traffic accident ends the drought, cheering them all up.

* Too many examples to list in Podcast/TheScathingAtheist. One notable example was when they brought on the hosts of the CognitiveDissonance Podcast in episode 128, where they listed jokes about the controversy regarding fetuses and Planned Parenthood.

Compare ActuallyPrettyFunny, when even the target of the joke concedes the humor of the situation.

This isn't as easy as it sounds. Shows attempting to be DarkerAndEdgier with their humor this way straddle the line between sadism and comedy, and it's easy to make a mistake and fall on the wrong side of the S.S. Tightrope. Rather than cross the line a second time, the show [[MemeticMutation makes a]] WrongTurnAtAlbuquerque and breaks the audience's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief. Some people just don't have a second line to cross in their minds, and will dislike any turn into sadism or vulgarity.

*** In one version of this joke, the act is actually an elaborate group suicide, and the whole family dies.

* ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'': Sadness talking about the "funny movie where [[TheDogDies the dog dies]]". Double for when Joy desperately brings it up to try to cheer her up. This goes even further in at least one foreign dub, where it's "the movie where [[Disney/TheLionKing the lion's father dies]]."
