Is it ever ok to make jokes about the Holocaust? Director Ferne Pearlstein faces this question head on to find out where comedians draw the line.

Pearlstein weaves together interviews with Holocaust survivors who talk about the importance of laughter (even in the concentration camps) and conversations with comedic giants like Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, and Sarah Silverman.  Pearlstein invites the viewer on a behind-the-scenes comedic journey marked by speed bumps, caution signs and potholes. The Last Laugh will leave you laughing and appreciating the importance of humor, even in the face of events that make you want to cry.
