Does Cursing in Jokes make them more "Funnier"?

Seems like almost every "comedian" uses curse words to
liven up their vocabulary or act.

Some do it on a regular basis, such as Chris Rock,
or George Carlin.

But do they really serve any real purpose, or are they just for show?

Does cursing actually and honestly make the joke much more funnier?

Well, Marvman isn't really bothered by it...
but when comes down to youngsters mimicing their favorite comedian's
acts, and using their language, it's just about crossing over the line.

What do ya guys think?

Oh and by the way, Jeff Dunham rocks.

Rockn.

I would say inb4george, but it looks as though you beat me to it. I personally don't have a problem with it, so long as every third word isn't a cuss word.

I know this kid who has a 3 year old brother who does that... It is quite funny... Not that I encourage it or anything.

No. It makes you sound like a moron with a small vocabulary.

I rather enjoy it in the jokes. It stresses the points better in some situations.

nope

cursing has never really made a joke Funnier. That's not the way it works. if cursing is part of the joke its to show something or to talk about it (as george carlin did). Even when little kids curse its not funny because they are cursing its funny because its a little kid. But that's also to say that cursing is need in a number of acts and it only works with them otherwise its not the original joke. But if you were to tell a joke and then add curse words to it, it wouldnt get funnier becuase of that.

ok, serious now


yes cursing can make or break a joke. there are no rules; its just what is funny.


are you seriously saying that The Big Lebowski wouldnt be as funny without all the swearing?

but at the same time, i dont want my favorite sitcoms dropping F bombs left and right


its not as black and white as we are making it out to be; its just what is funniest that works
