Can We Take a Joke Trailer and Newsweek

I’m very excited to announce the trailer is out for the movie I narrated called “Can We Take a Joke?”

Also, it is a cover story on Newsweek

The utter humorlessness of the outraged is the topic of an upcoming documentary called Can We Take a Joke? The film, narrated by comedian Christina Pazsitzky, includes interviews with comics Penn Jillette, Lisa Lampanelli, Adam Carolla, Jim Norton and Heather McDonald, and it will be released this August, on the 50th anniversary of Lenny Bruce’s death. Bruce was an iconic comedian who made profane work of politics, religion and sex in his standup act. A court convicted him of obscenity for his comedy, and he died of a drug overdose.

The Documentary I Narrated “Can We Take a Joke?” is Out!
