CHEVY CHASE, RICHARD DREYFUSS, ANDIE MACDOWELL, LEWIS BLACK, KATE MICUCCI AND CHRIS PARNELL WILL STAR IN GREG PRITIKIN’S "THE LAST LAUGH"



Emmy Award Winner® Chevy Chase (Caddyshack, Fletch, National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise and TV’s Saturday Night Live), Academy Award Winner® Richard Dreyfuss (The Goodbye Girl, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Jaws), Andie MacDowell (Groundhog Day, Four Weddings and A Funeral, Sex, Lies and Videotape), Lewis Black (TV Miniseries Madoff, Inside Out, The Aristocrats), Kate Micucci (The Lego Batman Movie, The Little Hours, Don’t Think Twice) and Chris Parnell (Battle of the Sexes, Sisters, “Archer”) have boarded comedy The Last Laugh. Written and directed by Greg Pritikin (Dummy), the Netflix Original from producer Rob Paris of Paris Film, Inc. starts shooting today in New Orleans.

After 50 years, talent manager and widower Al Hart reunites with former client Buddy Green who gave up a promising career as a stand-up comedian and instead settled down to have a family.  After Al convinces Buddy to perform on a bucket list tour of classic standup venues across the U.S., Buddy gets on last taste of the life he could have had.  The Last Laugh shows the rollercoaster ride of two men rekindling friendships, careers and ideas of the past while traveling around the country together.

“It’s not surprising a script as poignant and funny as this attracted such award-winning talent,” said Paris.  “It’s a perfect fit for a distributor like Netflix because it has universal themes and internationally-recognizable stars. I’m beyond excited to begin production with our amazing team in New Orleans and our dream cast.”
