FILM: Can We Take a Joke?

In the age of social media, nearly every day brings a new eruption of outrage. While people have always found something to be offended by, their ability to organize a groundswell of opposition to--and public censure of--their offender has never been more powerful. Today we're all one clumsy joke away from public ruin. Can We Take A Joke? offers a thought-provoking and wry exploration of outrage culture through the lens of stand-up comedy, with notables like Gilbert Gottfried, Penn Jillette, Lisa Lampanelli, and Adam Carolla detailing its stifling impact on comedy and the exchange of ideas. What will the future be like if we can't learn how to take a joke?

Starring: Gilbert Gottfried, Adam Carolla, Penn Jillette, Lisa Lampanelli, Jim Norton and more
Directed by Ted Balaker
Run time 74 minutes
