Is the Holocaust off-limits for comedy? “The Last Laugh” explores this question in a fascinating documentary. The film pairs film clips with interviews of Holocaust survivors, comedians (Including Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman and Joan Rivers), and Jewish leaders.
Following the screening, Ferne Pearlstein, director of “The Last Laugh”, joins us via Skype in a session led by College of Charleston professor Dr. David Slucki.
Proceeds go to the Charleston Jewish Federation‘s REMEMBER Program for Holocaust Education and Genocide Awareness.
Cost: $12.50 General/$18.00 Patron (includes Reserved Seating)
Advance tickets available at TerraceTheater.com – One night only, limited seating!

The Charleston JCC WOW 2016-1017 Bookfest is dedicated to the memory of our friend, Dr. Stanley Toporek (OBM)
Known for his keen intelligence and gruff wit, Dr. Stanley Toporek was a pillar in the Charleston community as a highly respected dentist and contributor to many causes and organizations, including the Addlestone Academy and Synagogue Emanu-El. After returning to Charleston in 1956, The Charleston JCC became one of his and his wife Ijo’s favorite organizations. Stanley was an active and hands-on participant, and it is an honor to dedicate Charleston JCC WOW Book and Filmfest in his memory.
