2018 TWIN CITIES JEWISH HUMOR FESTIVAL presents -

FILM: THE LAST LAUGH
A MINNESOTA PREMIERE!

The Holocaust would seem to be an absolutely off-limits topic for comedy. But is it? History shows that even victims of Nazi concentration camps used humor as a means of survival and resistance. Still, any use of comedy in connection with this horror risks diminishing the suffering of millions. So where is the line? If the Holocaust is taboo, what are the implications for other controversial subjects  9/11, AIDS, racism  in a society that prizes freedom of speech?

The Last Laugh offers fresh insights into these questions, featuring interviews with influential comedians and thinkers ranging from Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Jeff Ross, Larry Charles, and Gilbert Gottfried, to authors Etgar Keret and Shalom Auslander, plus Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League. The film also includes rare archival footage of cabarets inside the concentration camps themselves, as well as clips ranging from The Producers to Curb Your Enthusiasm, video of performances from comics Louis CK, George Carlin, and Chris Rock, and newly discovered footage of Jerry Lewis never-released Holocaust comedy The Day the Clown Cried.

Directed by Ferne Pearlstein | USA, 2017 | English | 88 Minutes | Documentary/Biography/Comedy
