Is This a Joke? (2011) – By Brian Morton

If you’ve never see Kentucky Fried Movie or The Groove Tube, then you might have missed some of the best 70s comedies ever! Well, it’s clear that Jim Haggerty and the guys over at Yellow Ape Productions haven’t forgotten these great movies, because their latest, Is This a Joke?, is clearly a tribute to these great, classic movies.

While there’s no good way to describe this, other than to say it’s just a series of great jokes acted out, it is a great movie. When I first opened it up, I was concerned that the 1 1/ hour running time might make this movie tedious, I was pleasantly surprised. Is This A Joke? moves so quickly and has you laughing so much, the movie feels nearly like a short.

Haggerty takes a bunch of jokes, most of which I’d never heard, and, by acting them out, gives them fresh life. It’s an idea that isn’t done enough, in my opinion. I’m giving Is This a Joke? 4 out of 4 cigars, it’s a great movie that will have you laughing out loud and still leave you wanting more!
