Description

Are we allowed to make jokes about tragedy? The Last Laugh looks to some of the smartest and funniest people alive to answer this question. Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Etgar Keret, Abraham Foxman, and many more weigh in on whether the Holocaust is off-limits for comedy. Through these interviews and clips from our favorite comedians, TV shows, and movies, The Last Laugh offers fresh insights into the Holocaust, our own psyches, and our senses of humor.


Please join us for a Passholder Party at Hops n Scotch after the Mid-Fest screening (11/16).


Co-presented by The GlobeDocs Film Festival
