Watch Trailer
Read Review


US, 1982
Rupert Pupkin (Robert De Niro) is a delusional schmuck living with his mother and a life-size cardboard cutout of Liza Minnelli, practicing to become a famous stand-up comedian. He leaves his basement set to stalk Johnny Carson-like talk show host Jerry Langford (icily played by Jerry Lewis), in the hopes of securing a spot on his show. Willing to go to great lengths to break into show biz, Pupkin enlists his madcap friend Masha (Sandra Bernhard) to help him kidnap Langford. Darkly hilarious, THE KING OF COMEDY is considered by many to be one of Scorsese and De Niro’s finest and most overlooked works. (109 mins.)

DJ set by Ghost Capital.
