This week on the FadCast, “The Last Laugh” director Ferne Pearlstein drops in to talk taboo comedy and how one approaches making a documentary about Holocaust jokes. From being delighted by Mel Brooks to having to censor Jeff Ross, Pearlstein recounts what content made it into her new documentary and what didn’t. We then put “The Last Laugh” into perspective by comparing to other comedy documentaries and how Pearlstein drew inspiration from the uncouth “The Aristocrats.” But first, Pearlstein joins us for a “ludicrous” scene reading from the Mel Brooks classic “Spaceballs!”
Before that, we briefly talk MICROSOFT ANNOUNCES MONTHLY XBOX GAME PASS SERVICE and EXCLUSIVE: ‘WOLVES’ WRITER/DIRECTOR BART FREUNDLICH TALKS MAKING A GOOD SPORTS MOVIE for our SPEED ROUND!
