Plot Summary

Life is no joke is a dark comedy short film about a court jester who is about to give his most important performance in front of his majesty. In this kingdom a bad performance is paid with the comedian's life... and things don't look great for Erwin when right before facing what could be his final performance, an existential crisis occurs: he doesn't find anything funny anymore. Erwin will have to make a decision whether he wants to die trying to be funny or drink the poison he brought with him (just in case). Written by Anonymous
