That’s not funny.

Comedian Robert Schimmel, 59, was arrested before dawn Saturday on a felony domestic violence charge for roughing up his young wife, cops said.

The X-rated comedian is known for his off-color humor and his battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which he chronicles in his new book, “Cancer on $5 a Day.”

Cops said they were called to his suburban L.A. home around 12:30 a.m. and saw marks on his wife. He was being held in a Los Angeles County jail on $50,000 bail.

Schimmel, who has made appearances on The Howard Stern show, Conan O’Brien and HBO, has had rocky relationships before. He divorced his first wife, Vicki, three times. When his cancer went into remission, he married his daughter’s friend, Melissa, who is half his age.
