There isn't a single joke here, more it follows a form:
 
1) A talent agent is looking for a new act, some people (normally a family) walk in
2) The agent asks what they do.
3) The act follows, the description of which normally breaks as many taboos as possible, the more extreme the better and normally ad-lib'd
4) The agent says "What do you call such an act"
5) "The Aristocrats"
 
The point isn't so much the joke itself, more the way it's told. Each comedian will have their own take on it, especially on point 3.
