© 2017 The Last Laugh

Entertaining, thought-provoking...Pearlstein’s very deft assembly manages to raise all these ideas and others for viewer consideration while underlining that there are few, if any, definitive responses to them.

     VARIETY

Director Ferne Pearlstein [explores] not only the limits of humor and free speech today, but how Shoah victims and survivors used humor as a salve, defense mechanism and weapon despite their powerlessness.    

     JEWISH TELEGRAPHIC AGENCY

Pearlstein's film doesn't only examine the issue from those with a microphone, but through Holocaust survivors who add a deeper dimension to the film: humor as a necessary survival tool. … By seeking humor in the darkest dark, The Last Laugh gets at the intrinsic nature of comedy.

     ASSOCIATED PRESS

Entertaining and deeply philosophical.

     POV MAGAZINE

Digs into what we define as humor in an

increasingly PC time. 

     INDIEWIRE

Funny and sobering at the same time.

     HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Reveals….the intensely personal nature of what people find funny….It doesn’t downplay the tragedy behind the comedy.

     THE GUARDIAN

Entertaining and wrenching….The Last Laugh received a standing ovation at its star-studded Tribeca premiere.

     NEW YORK OBSERVER

The best part about the documentary is getting to listen to these funny people talk about all of these issues….That alone is worth the price of admission.
