FadCast Ep. 131 | Taboo Comedy Documentaries ft. ‘The Last Laugh’ Director Ferne Pearlstein

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!

About The Author

Pooya

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by FilmFad.com to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at FilmFad.com, he was home.
