* At the Friar's Club roast of Hugh Hefner, Creator/GilbertGottfried was booed by the audience for telling a joke about 9/11. Keep in mind, this was only ''[[TooSoon three weeks]]'' after the attacks, and the roast was being held in New York. How did Gottfried defuse the situation? By telling his version of Main/TheAristocrats. Surprisingly, it worked very well: He got [[CrossingTheLineTwice huge laughs]] and managed to win back the hostile crowd.
* Creator/NormMacDonald employs it sometimes in his stand-up, such as all of "Best Disease Ever" from the title onward, concluding with hypothetical Alcoholics Anonymous member Richie K in Norm's cheerful deadpan.
--> One time I was under the influence of the demon rum, and I started punching my newborn in the face. I kinda looked down on my fist and it was all bloody with, uh, I don't know what it was. It was either from my knuckles or my son's ''skull''.

* Utah Philips' "Moose Turd Pie" monologue is ''made'' of this trope. So is the character who speaks its final line, for that matter.
* If anyone has heard TheAristocrats joke, this trope was made for its very existence.
** ''Particularly'' when GilbertGottfried told it after his failed 9/11 joke at the Roast of Hugh Hefner.
* DonRickles.
* AndyKaufman
* TomGreen
* [[FrankieBoyle Frankie Fucking Boyle]]. "Why is Rape in predictive text? Sorry mum, gonna miss dinner... Gone raping."
* DanielTosh discusses this trope regarding a joke about how, given three wishes, he would have sex with the theoretical baby of DavidBeckham and Creator/BradPitt (Which apparently resembles baby Jesus with a six-pack) three times.
* BobSaget, apart from his more [[FullHouse well-known]] [[AmericasFunniestHomeVideos family friendly]] gigs. [[PlayingAgainstType Possibly]] ''[[PlayingAgainstType due]]'' [[PlayingAgainstType to having to play those roles]].
* AndrewDiceClay was very popular for awhile primarily due to this.



--->"Well done, well done! You killed a hundred thousand people!? You must get up very early in the morning!"
* Invoked by Chilean comedian Juan Carlos "Palta" Meléndez in early 2007. One of his best known imitations was of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, who had died in december 2006... so when he was slated to act in the Festival of Viña, he at first said he would NOT imitate Pinochet. But when his act came, around the second half the lights went down and once they returned Meléndez started ''feigning to be the target of a GrandTheftMe from Pinochet's soul''. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity ensued]].
