Two Jews and a Nazi walk into an Auschwitz bar … what, not funny? Can we make jokes about the Holocaust? Leading comedians can't agree. In this outrageously funny and thought-provoking film, comedy’s ultimate taboo was put to legends including Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Sarah Silverman, Gilbert Gottfried, Alan Zweibel, Harry Shearer, Jeff Ross, Judy Gold, Susie Essman, Larry Charles, Jake Ehrenreich, and many other critical thinkers, as well as Holocaust survivors themselves. A most intriguing conversation emerges over where to draw the line between bad taste and bad jokes, shedding new light on the Soup Nazi, Hogan's Heroes and the entire premise of 'The Producers'. Star-studded, provocative and thoroughly entertaining, 'The Last Laugh' asks uncomfortable questions about just how free speech can really be, with unexpected and hilarious results. Where do you cross over to bad taste and insensitivity?
