A trailer for “Can We Take A Joke?” has been released, and the movie is taking a direct shot at opponents of free speech.

The documentary is being produced by famous comedians Adam Carolla and Gilbert Gottfried, and will most certainly upset fans of a super politically correct culture. (VIDEO: Watch The Trailer For Tom Hanks’ Latest Film ‘Inferno’)


Here is the plot of the film, according to IMDB:

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 future will be like if we can’t learn how to take a joke?

It is currently scheduled for an Aug. 2 release date.
