If you're going to work blue — work really blue. As in filthy. As in quadruple-X, dripping with images so pornographic you'll send audiences straight to church to cleanse themselves. That's more or less the philosophy of the sickos behind The Dirtiest Sketch in L.A. Contest , which turns crudeness into a sport. That's right. Joe Hartzler (pictured looking deceptively clean) and Amanda Egge dreamed up the concept. Sketch writers are given three simple rules: “It has to be dirty. It has to be written. It has to be less than three minutes.”
