Comedy veterans Penn Jillette and Paul Provenza capitalize on their insider status and invite over 100 of their closest friends (who just happen to be some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Jon Stewart, George Carlin, Drew Carey, Steven Wright, Bill Maher, Eddie Izzard, Harry Shearer, Martin Mull, Hank Azaria, Paul Reiser, and Sarah Silverman) to reminisce, analyze, deconstruct and deliver their own versions of the world's dirtiest joke, an old burlesque routine, too extreme to be performed in public, called "The Aristocrats".

One of the smash hits of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, this star-studded comedy extravaganza, which celebrates the art of improvisation and the finest (and most foul-mouthed) traditions of stand-up, is sure to stretch the limits of its audience--particularly for how loud and long they can laugh.
