* Everyone above is clearly wrong. The mime act, complete with the horror of onlookers, is perfection.



to:

* For me it's Martin Mull's dry and erudite reading that really makes it, especially the way he nails the CruelTwistEnding.


* Phyllis Diller cmments in mock-outrage of the bestiality present in some versions and remarks, "It's in the Bible!" Penn Jillette then quips, "It's also in my diary." Diller then loses her composure and cracks up.

* This troper was shocked at how hilarious Gilbert Gottfried was in this film not once, but twice. The first as he tells a horrifically, graphically disturbing version of the joke, and then later when a roast audience squirms at his 9/11 joke, and he punishes them for their insolence by launching into yet another elaborate, terrifying version of the joke that causes Rob Schneider to drop out of his chair and convulse on the ground with laughter as Gilbert completely wins the crowd back.

* It helps if you have a fondness for BlackComedy, but the documentary ''Film/TheAristocrats'' is arguably a Crowning Moment of Truly Filthy Jokes, the Crowning-est of which has to be Gilbert Gottfried's epic version told at the Hugh Hefner roast. The runner-up is surely the one with the ventriloquist's dummy.

* Drew Carey mentions how he adds a little finger snap when delivering the punchline; the filmmakers remark how he's the only one they've seen do that, but they show several other comedians who apparently are familiar with how Carey does it as they fondly comment on it.
* Phyllis Diller comments in mock-outrage of the bestiality present in some versions and remarks, "It's in the Bible!" Penn Gillette then quips, "It's also in my diary." Diller then loses her composure and cracks up.

Added DiffLines:

** If you watch closely, Gottfried almost cracks up himself when he glances at Schneider.
** "They may have to edit this bit for TV!" Hugh Hefner motions with his hand as if to say, "Yeah, maybe a little bit!"

*Then there's The Aristocrats done as a card trick. That could double as a MomentOf Awesome.

* Wendy Leibman subverted the entire concept with her telling of the famous joke. She spins a tale about a sweet, innocent family having milk, cookies, and being tucked into bed. At the end, the cameraman provides the setup, "And what's the name of the act?" "[[spoiler:The Cocksucking Motherfuckers.]]" And, much like the example listed above, the cameraman cracks up for a few seconds.

* A bonus feature on the DVD shows a deleted segment with TerryGilliam. For initially unexplained reasons, it appears only with DVDCommentary by co-director Paul Provenza. Provenza describes his meeting with Gilliam and notes that he gave Provenza very important film-making advice [[spoiler: [[CameraObscurer When recording audio, wear your headphones to check if the microphone is on.]] ]]
