"Comedy Central: Un-F%#&ed"

Take the comedians most (in)famous for putting two or more profanities in every sentence and challenge them to do a totally clean routine. :)

No politics, religion or graphic* sex jokes. Not even a hell or damn. See if the audience is laughing because the comedian is really funny or if they're just giggling at the silly person on stage saying stuff they can't get away with at work or school.

*Risque is Ok, like Jeff Foxworthy or Benny Hill or Monty Python, they did a lot of hilarious stuff but didn't have to "drop the F-bomb" to get a laugh.

I think it'd make a good charity event that would be family friendly for ANY family. (And the "Middle America" viewers it would attract would be good for Comedy Central's ratings.)

Here's their feedback page.

Guys like Chris Rock are funny, but I've laughed best and hardest, to the point of gasping for air, at comedians who don't resort to 'spicing' their routines with fuck twice per sentence.

See: Mitch Hedberg

(he'd swear occasionally, but not often and it rarely figured into the humor)

And the great great grandparents of clean comedy on TV, George Burns and Gracie Allen.
