The King of Comedy

1983 Rated PG 1hr 45m

Director Martin Scorsese hits a satirical bulls-eye in this black comedy that explores the absurd lengths to which nebbish Rupert Pupkin (Robert De Niro) will go to land a spot on the TV talk show of his idol, Jerry Langford (a wonderfully caustic Jerry Lewis). Pupkin believes that one appearance on Langford's show will be his ticket to stardom, so he kidnaps his idol and sets into motion a chain of events you have to see to believe!
