Watch: Arlen Specter's Stand-Up Comedy Routine Isn't Bad

The Former Pennsylvania Senator proved last night that old people saying dirty things is inherently funny. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Specter took to an open-mic night last night (video below, mildly NSFW) at Philadelphia's Helium Comedy Club. Reaching deep into his well of political jokes, Specter mocked Bill Clinton, former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, and Herman Cain, most of which unsurprisingly ended in a raunchy sexual punchline. (Specter also proved that just saying Herman Cain is really funny.)

"I’ve been in comedy now for 30 years — the only difference is that it’s not stand-up. We all have comfortable chairs,” joked Specter. As of press time, there have been no reports of an SNL petition for Specter.
