The King of Comedy (Martin Scorsese, 1983)

Jan 18, 2020

Presented by Wexner Center for the Arts
The King of Comedy (Martin Scorsese, 1983)

Martin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy stars Robert De Niro as Rupert Pupkin, an aspiring and unbalanced stand-up comedian and the star of his own talk show—in his mother’s basement. Convinced that an appearance with late-night host Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis) is the only thing keeping him from stardom, Pupkin stalks and kidnaps Langford, holding him as ransom for a slot on the show. (109 mins., DCP)
