The Last Laugh
Can the Holocaust ever be funny? Can a tragedy the scale of the Holocaust ever be the subject of comedy? Perhaps more importantly, should it be? Here we see comedians like Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, and Gilbert Gottfried pitch in with their own views on the boundaries of comedy - views tested against the reactions of Holocaust survivors. Star-studded, provocative, and entertaining, this documentary dares to ask uncomfortable questions about just how free speech can be.
