* DavidMitchell could strike you as a rather shy, calm and introverted person, and even when making one of his long and rather angry rants he usually watches his language. If he does swear, it's really a remarkable moment, such as an appearance on Adam Hills' ''Series/{{The Last Leg}}'', where he goes on a rant about tax avoidance including an ice cream analogy and no swearing at all, until the very end:

-->'''Bill Cosby:''' So I asked, 'what is it about cocaine that makes it so wonderful?" He said 'Well, it intensifies your personality.' I said, 'Yes, but what if you're an asshole?'"

** As part of an HBO special shortly after the last episode of ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'', he said "You have no idea how many times on that show I just wanted to shout 'Shut the fuck up, Debra! Shut the fuck up!'" He went on to say "This is Cable, I'm allowed to swear."

** It's secondhand, but: EddieMurphy did a hilarious bit about Cosby chiding him for his use of foul language. It culminates with Murphy-imitating-Cosby saying "Yooooooooooou ''({{beat}})'' cannot say ''(beat)'' FUCK. ''(beat)'' In front of people." In the mid-1980s, the mere suggestion that Bill Cosby actually said "fuck" is enough to bring the house down.

--> "So what we're doing is we're discouraging people from being nice and having a conscience... by taxing it. And that is the most '''fucking bonkers''' system that we could possibly have come across."

* BillyConnolly is known for his barrage of F-words (and in his most recent material, the C-word) but earlier in his career he tended to avoid stronger swear words, replacing them with childish ones ("Jobby" instead of "Shit" for instance). As his career progressed, he gradually started using stronger language, leading to a wonderful Precision F Strike in a story about a Cardinal visiting a Roman Catholic school in Glasgow, Scotland. After a child tells the Cardinal to "fuck off", the offended holyman goes on a long tirade about how he studied hard to be in the position he was in today, ascending the ranks of the clergy to eventually sitting on the jury who elected Pope John Paul II. The punchline:
--> "....and you're telling ME to fuck off? '''YOU''' fuck off!!"

* British comedian FrankSkinner experimented with this trope while on tour, first by removing all swearing from his act and then by reintroducing only the most significant swearwords. He later started promoting the buzzword Intelligent Swearing.

* Steven Wright's act is generally devoid of any and all cursing. Given his tendencies towards literalism, though, it shouldn't come as any surprise that the one time his stage persona swore it was because he thought he was speaking French.
