Thats according to comedian Sarah Silverman, who admits she tries to incorporate poop and fart jokes as much as possible in her new show The Sarah Silverman Project.
Its not just for shock value. She says people of all ages and nationalities laugh at bodily functions.
Says Silverman: Poop is the international language of comedy. It doesnt matter where you are or what language you speak everyone laughs at a stupid fart joke.
In the show, Silverman sings about uncontrollable bowels and also lets out some good old fashioned farts.
She explains: Having America visualize me poop is the last thing I want them to do that terrifies me but it was so funny filming we just had to put them all in.
In order to see if her potty humor isnt complete crap, Silverman runs all of her jokes by boyfriend Jimmy Kimmels two kids first.
As she puts it, They have a good sense of whats really funny and we both always try out material on them.
The Sarah Silverman Program premieres Thursday (Feb. 1) on Comedy Central.
