Storyline

THE LAST LAUGH dares to ask: "Are we allowed to joke about the Holocaust?" This outrageously funny and thought-provoking film puts the question to legends and critical thinkers including Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Gilbert Gottfried, and many others (including survivors), offering fresh insights into the Holocaust and what else-9/11, AIDS, racism-is or isn't off-limits in a society that prizes freedom of speech. After screening at over 100 festivals (including Tribeca, HotDocs, Traverse City, BFI London, Rome, IDFA), and Certified Fresh at 98% on Rotten Tomatoes, THE LAST LAUGH was released theatrically in March 2017 and broadcast in April 2017 (Independent Lens/PBS) where it was runner-up for that season's Audience Award.

Interesting but this has been done so many times
4 July 2017 | by aldiborontiSee all my reviews

It's watchable and instructive at times but honestly I must have seen half a dozen documentaries on the subject of Holocaust humor and the feelings of both the survivors and present-day Jewish comedians.

There's nothing new here at all and just for a change I'd like to see documentaries about the humor of others involved in those events. The SS, for instance, must have made jokes, both at the expense of their victims and probably their superiors too. It would be interesting to hear about those. And what about the Poles? What did they find to laugh about during the war? It's good to hear about Jewish humor but they weren't the only people with a sense of humor in those days.
