I’ve gotta see The Aristocrats movie that’s coming out soon. Devised by Penn Jillette of Penn&Teller, it consists of 100 comedians telling the same joke – in wildly different ways.
With “The Aristocrats”, Paul Provenza and Penn Jillette have made the funniest movie ever, because it has more funny people than have ever been in one movie before. A labor of love three years in the making, encompassing more than 100 comedians and culled from over 100 hours of footage, Provenza and Jillette shot the documentary holding DV cameras in their own hot little hands and edited it at home on a Mac. As fellow comedians, Provenza and Jillette got their cameras rolling where no real filmmaker could ever go. They let us see how professional comedians talk after their sitcoms have wrapped and the audience has gone home.
The result is a heartfelt, private, unprecedented backstage look at famous comedians playing around. Provenza and Jillette got superstar comedians being funny for other comedians, and that is really no-kidding funny. They also captured a performance portrait unlike any other – the art of comic improvisation.
“The Aristocrats” has no nudity, no sex, and no violence, but it’s one of the most shocking movies you will ever see. Take a deep breath. This is the power of language spoken by professionals. Professionals trying to outdo each other with the most hysterically disgusting, offensive, f**ked-up verbal images they can spit out. You’ll hear descriptions that will stay with you the rest of your life, whether you want them to or not.
Sounds juuuuust fine to me.
Appearing in the movie: Penn Jillette, Chris Rock, Robin Williams, Jon Stewart, Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Eddie Izzard, Hank Azaria, Drew Carey, George Carlin and many, many more.
