Sam Kinison’s description of Pat Robertson’s 1984 presidential campaign, at the close of his 1986 Saturday Night Live monologue, is the funniest “Jesus Joke” ever told. Maybe offensive to the devout, but anyone with an honest sense of humor, will recognize it as stand up comedy at its absolute finest.

NBC blocked this edited clip of Sam’s Saturday Night Live monologue, but it’s worth going to the “official” site, sitting through the ads, and staying with it until the funniest Easter joke you’ll ever hear (see).
