‘Can We Take a Joke?’ Hits Theaters This Week in NYC and LA

The FIRE-supported documentary explores what happens when comedy collides with outrage culture on and off campus. Now, after a year on the film festival circuit, audiences can catch full theatrical runs of the movie in New York City and Los Angeles starting this Friday, July 29.
