20. 'Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction'
According to stand-up comics who don't curse, going blue is easy; so what happens when a comedian must work blue, crafting filthy material intended to violate an existing, fictional universe like that of Middle Earth or Mayberry? This is Bryan Cook's foul and outrageous celebration of "Muppet boners." The live event, which has only begun taping its contests last year, asks several comics to bring prepared material while others have only about 30 minutes to write based on audience suggestion. Its audacity alone is compelling enough, but in its best moments, the gross jokes transcend porn mechanics to become a titillating delight.
