This week, we have a rerun! Host Jesse David Fox deconstructs the legendary joke "The Aristocrats" with the help of its most infamous teller, Gilbert Gottfried.

This one's marked explicit for a reason, folks.

You'll hear Gilbert's personal history with the joke, along with his retelling of his set the night of the Hugh Hefner roast, where he launched this joke into the public eye. Jesse asks Gilbert about the evolution of his onstage persona and his relationship with audiences.

Also included: Jesse's Bubbe's favorite joke, and Gilbert's shortest version of "The Aristocrats".
