The Aristocrats (also known as The Debonaires or The Sophisticates in some tellings) is an exceptionally transgressive dirty joke that has been told by numerous stand-up comedians since the vaudeville era. Steven Wright has likened it to a secret handshake among comedians, and it is seen as something of a game in which those who tell it try to top each other in terms of shock value. It is rarely told the same way twice, often improvised, and was the subject of a 2005 documentary film of the same name. It is thought of as a badge of honour among expert comedians and is notoriously hard to tell but when done right is an outstandingly good joke.

 

Throughout its long history, it has evolved from a clichéd staple of vaudevillian humor into a postmodern anti-joke.
