THE KING OF COMEDY

Dark Comedy
Comedian Rupert Pupkin confronts then kidnaps his hero, late night talk show host Jerry Langford, all for a shot at the big time. Thirty years after its release, Martin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy is more relevant than ever, sending up reality television culture through an unforgettable hack who overcomes his many social shortcomings with felonious ambition. Robert De Niro, Sandra Bernhard and the legendary Jerry Lewis light up the screen in this marvelous, multi-layered comic gem.
