"Insightfully open-ended inquiry into the role of humor as it relates to unspeakable tragedy." Village Voice

"By seeking humor in the darkest dark, The Last Laugh gets at the intrinsic nature of comedy." Associated Press

The Last Laugh dares ask: “Are we allowed to joke about the Holocaust?” This outrageously funny and thought-provoking film puts the question to legends 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 nearly 100 festivals (Tribeca, HotDocs, Traverse City, BFI London, Rome, IDFA), it was released theatrically in March 2017 and nationally broadcast on Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2017 on PBS’s prestigious Independent Lens series where it was runner-up for the Audience Award.

Q&A with filmmaker Ferne Pearlsteinand Holocaust Survivor Renee Firestone, moderated by Principal Writer/Director and Executive Producer of Moriah Films, Richard Trank.
