The Last Laugh
Director: Ferne Pearstein
Runtime: 85 min
GENRES: Documentary, Holocaust, Comedy, American Studies
THE LAST LAUGH dares to ask comedy legends Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Gilbert Gottfried, and many others (including survivors): “Are we allowed to joke about the Holocaust?”
THE LAST LAUGH offers fresh insights into the Holocaust and what else—9/11, AIDS, racism—is or isn’t off-limits in a society that prizes freedom of speech.
