The Aristocrats

In case you are in need of something a little lighter (see post below), you may be interested in checking out the movie The Artisocrats, which opens in NY and LA at the end of July and nationwide in mid-August. Here's the trailer.

If you haven't heard of this already, the movie is a bunch of different comedians telling their version of supposedly the most profane joke ever - "The Aristocrats". Here's the NY Times' take on it. In a nutshell, the always starts out with a family walking into a talent agency, and the punchline is always "The Aristocrats!". The guts of the joke involve the joke-teller putting the family into the most lewd and obscence acts they can come up with- and the more offensive, the better.

Sounds like a tribute to free speech. I can't wait to see it!
