“A truly provocative film that both entertains and educates” – Dorkshelf
The world's foremost comedians can't agree on how to joke about the Holocaust, or if it's even ethical to try. Filmmaker Ferne Pearlstein puts the fascinating debate over comedy's ultimate taboo to legends including Carl Reiner, Gilbert Gottfried and Harry Shearer, along with actual survivors such as Renee Firestone and other critical thinkers. Many, like Sarah Silverman, think jokes have the ability to keep history's greatest tragedy present, while Mel Brooks and others reject the premise entirely. A most intriguing conversation emerges over where to draw the line between bad taste and bad jokes, shedding new light on the Soup Nazi, Hogan's Heroes and the entire premise of The Producers. Star-studded, provocative and thoroughly entertaining, The Last Laugh dares to ask uncomfortable questions about just how free speech can really be, with unexpected and hilarious results.
