If you’re anything like me, you ask yourself this question every single day while you’re watching the news.

The question is a simple one – can our society even take a joke anymore?

It seems like every day that a new person or group of people is up in arms, taking to Twitter to show their absolute outrage over something that was meant as a simple joke.

Thankfully, a lot of great comedians of every race, gender, and political persuasion have come together for a documentary getting rave reviews.

The title of the documentary is as simple as i could be – “Can We Take a Joke?”

With veteran comedians like Gilbert Gottfried, Penn Jillette, Lisa Lampanelli, and Adam Carolla participating, the documentary which has been a part of multiple film festivals is hitting theaters in NYC and LA in late July and available for downloading on iTunes for all of us on August 2nd.

It’s good to hear all of these comedians – some of whom I agree with politically and many of whom I do not at all – realizing the severity of this social problem. Attacks on comedians and our culture of outrage are fundamentally eroding our freedoms of speech, association, and more.

It’s not very funny. In fact, it’s quite serious.
