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.”

WHAT THE FEST!? Interview with Larry Fessenden on DEPRAVED

On this episode of the podcast, I had the chance to chat with genre legend Larry Fessenden. He was kind enough to carve out 20 minutes of his day to chat with me about his latest film DEPRAVED, the opening night selection for this year's WHAT THE FEST!? 
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN,  writer-director Larry Fessenden’s brings his unique vision of the literary classic in DEPRAVED, set in modern Brooklyn. This meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals.
