Lillian is approached by a producer who wants to use her diner for a "Banana Cream" cosmetics commercial because of its 50's-style décor. Charles is asked to handle the financial arrangements with the producer, Veronica Radford, so he invites her to his place, thinking it is a way to combine business with pleasure. That evening, Veronica takes note of both Jamie and Sarah and tells Charles that the sister with the "fresh fifties" look would make the perfect substitute for the model who just backed out of the commercial deal. Charles assumes that she is referring to Jamie and passes along the good news. The next day, Jamie shows up for rehearsal at the diner only to discover that the "fresh fifties" face belongs to Sarah. Director Todd Sterling detects Jamie's disappointment and offers her a dancing banana part. watch

The Aristocrats: The Joke's Now on DVD

Paul Provenza is a seasoned comedy veteran. From stand-up to acting in sitcoms and movies, he's no stranger to the funny bone. So it's not surprising that his directorial debut — a meditation on one unbelievably dirty joke — garnered some serious attention at last year's Sundance Film Festival. The Aristocrats, arriving in stores today on DVD, is a who's who of comedy's finest — from George Carlin to Robin Williams to Jon Stewart to Whoopi Goldberg, and the list goes on and on. Provenza spoke with about the movie and about one particular telling of The Aristocrats that has gone down in Hollywood lore. This project is the brainchild of you and Penn Jillette read more
