"The Last Laugh" - LA PREMIERE and sneak preview presented by the LA Jewish Film Festival
Join us for an exclusive LA PREMIERE!

Q&A to follow film!
Director FERNE PEARLSTEIN
Holocaust survivor RENEE FIRESTONE
and other special guests

PLEASE NOTE: Sarah Silverman was called away on a film shoot tonight but THE FILM AND Q&A WILL GO ON!!

Are we allowed to make jokes about the Holocaust? In this star-studded, provocative and thoroughly entertaining documentary, filmmaker Ferne Pearlstein puts the question about comedy's ultimate taboo to legendary comedians and prominent Jewish leaders(including Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Joan Rivers, Carl Reiner, Rob Reiner, David Steinberg, Alan Zweibel, Larry Charles, Louis C.K., Susie Essman, Judy Gold and Abraham Foxman) with an intimate profile of Auschwitz survivor Renee Firestone and her daughter Klaire (as well as other survivors including Robert Clary). Juxtaposing clips from films, performances, and interviews Pearlstein weaves together a poignant and brilliant in-depth exploration into what is and is not off-limits in comedy.

Director Ferne Pearlstein | USA | 2016 | 85 minutes | English

In partnership with the Laemmle Theatres and Jewish Journal
