* The ''Derek and Clive'' performances of Creator/DudleyMoore and Creator/PeterCook are one long unrelenting cluster F-Strike, with the added napalm of lots and lots of references to CountryMatters. Cook and Moore originally used this to present material thought, with good reason, to be too inflammatory or taboo-breaking for TV and appear to take unholy glee in pushing back the boundaries of good taste. It isn't so much GettingCrapPastTheRadar as carpet-bombing the radar installations.

* In one old joke, someone describes how he met a woman at a bar and got friendly enough to be invited to spend the night with her. The narrator drops f-bombs every third word or so until the story concludes with "...and we had sexual intercourse".

Added DiffLines:

* Frequently used by comedians, especially Louis CK who is practically a god of obscenity.
* There is a comedy piece that's presented as a grammatic lecture on the word "Fuck". It notes it can be used as a verb, noun, or almost any word in a sentence: "Fuck the fucking fuckers!"
* Katt Williams, so much so that every third to fifth word has to be bleeped out whenever his stand up specials are edited for tv.
* The German comedian MichaelMittermeier parodied this in ''Zapped!''. According to him, this is the way people speak in [[BigApplesauce New York City]]: They use "fuck" whenever possible.
-->'''Tourist:''' Fuck you, fucking salesman! Gimme the fucking coke outta the fucking icebox.\\
'''Shop owner:''' Hey man! You wanna fuck me with your fucking order? Fuck you! ''(and so on)''
* Creator/RobinWilliams offered this "impression of a New York echo":
--> [Mimes opening a window] Helloooo!\\
Shut the fuck up!
* Creator/DenisLeary is rather fond of this trope, and uses it quite frequently in his routines. His "No Cure For Cancer" tour routine starts off with "Thank you, thank you, thank you, and fuck you!"
* According to comedian Creator/LewisBlack, the city of New York uses "fuck" not as a swear word but, in his words, a comma. He also seems to be very fond of it himself.
** The Kennedy Center in DC declined to let him record his HBO special ''Red, White and Screwed'' there, because of how many times he had said "fuck" in his last special ("Do you know how many times Mr. Black said 'Fuck'? …forty-two."), forcing him to record at the Warner Theater (which, according to Lew, has an "eighty-fuck limit.")
** He has also joked on ''The Carnegie Hall Performance'' that when performing at Carnegie Hall, "I'm only allowed to say 'fuck' twelve times." He ends up saying it at least 75 times across both discs.
* Creator/GeorgeCarlin had a bit in the seventies about the word itself, where at one point, he launches into a hilariously hostile ClusterFBomb: "Don't fuck with me you'll get fucked I'm the fucker don't fuck with the fucker! Fuck you and everyone that looks like you!"
** SevenDirtyWords also counts.
* And, dear gods, JosieLong.
* Heath Franklin's impersonation of Chopper Read is known for his constant swearing.
* Creator/BillHicks did this a lot.
* During Bill Burr's [[http://dregs.net/ona/PhillyBurr.html epic 12-minute rant]] at the Opie and Anthony's Traveling Virus Comedy Tour's 2006 stop in Philadelphia, he used the word "fuck", "fucking", or "motherfucker" over 130 times, with the occasional "shit", "asshole", "Goddamn", and "cunt" for spice.
* While Creator/MargaretCho is no stranger to profanity herself, in ''Assassin'' she describes a letter she got after criticizing then-president UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush. It ''started'' with "GOOK CHINK CUNT FUCKING DIE!" and got even more… poetic from there. To top it all off, it ended with "Jesus saves."
* Music/TimMinchin's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sph8Qu8wLAk Fuck the Motherfucker]].
* ''Creator/BobSaget'' [[Series/FullHouse of all people]] during his stand up acts. 9/10 viewers suffer from a destroyed childhood right after.
* Sean Lock has a joke in which he claims many swear words in the English language came into existence in 1066 during the battle of Hastings, at the moment when King Harold [[EyeScream was shot through the eye by a Norman archer]]. It goes something like this:
-->'''Harold''': Aaaaaargh! Right In the fucking eye! That's fucked up my fucking day! Oh bollocks, shit, wanker, arse, cunt…\\
'''English Nobleman''': There's no need for that kind of language, sire!\\
'''Harold''': Are you fucking kidding me!? Look at my fucking face! I've got a fucking arrow! Right in my fucking eye! And anyway, I'm the fucking king! I'll say whatever the fuck I want! Come over here, I'll stick it up your arse!
