  • Episode Description
  • This episode presents a drama about the last comedian on earth, Gerald Q. Wert. The totalitarian world-super-government deems laughter to be a malignant infection of public morals and a revolutionary activity. All comedians and laughmakers have been executed or surrendered their art to avoid death. In this society, no one laughs or smiles. Wert is the subject of a worldwide search. He finds sanctuary in a small American community and befriends a boy, Peter. At night Wert gives performances in cellars. Wert is captured and led to his death. Peter performs Wert's act for his friends and they roar with laughter.moreless
