@ The Willows at Worcester, Great Room

Director: Ferne Pearlstein; USA, 2016;

88 minutes; English
Are we allowed to make jokes about tragedy?

The Last Laugh features clips from films and TV shows, performances, and interviews with top comedians and prominent Jewish leaders (including Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Joan Rivers, Abraham Foxman, and many others) on whether joking about the Holocaust and other human atrocities is ever acceptable. A powerful documentary about a controversial subject, director Ferne Pearlstein weaves together a poignant and thoughtful exploration into whether the Holocaust is off-limits in comedy. Screened at Boston Jewish Film Festival, 2016
