There are quite a few present-day comedians who would do well to look back upon their predecessors and learn from them.
Brian Regan is probably the only newer clean comic working today and he still manages to be one of the best around, though that's not to say that cursing makes you an inferior comic. Cursing when used appropriately (that may be an oxymoron) can really add a punch to a joke, but blatant, nonstop cursing is the stuff of the infamously unfunny comedian.
