Can it be funny without the "F" word

I have listened to two respected commentators on all things about life and economics for years and have never been aware of any profanity from either person.

Yet, for a live podcast, where they are to try out their skills as stand up comedians, the show started with a "bad language" warning, and then both commentators liberally spread the "F" word through their attempts [ some good jokes too ] at stand up.

So I wonder, even though I have been known to use profanity often, usually for dramatic effect when stuff isn't quite working out, isn't it possible to be funny in 2016 without using offensive language - it must have been offensive because they said "be warned, some of the language that follow will offend some people" at the start of the show.

What do you think?
