KING OF COMEDY, THE

40th Anniversary

Rupert Pupkin (Robert De Niro), a 34-year-old New York City messenger who lives with his mother, has a dream: to do his standup routine on Jerry Langford's (Jerry Lewis) late-night talk show and become recognized as a "king of comedy." Pursuit of his dream leads to what most people would call stalking; after joining forces with certifiably star-struck society girl Masha (Sandra Bernhard), the two go all in, kidnapping the late-night host in order to make their pitch. This horrifying and hilarious skewering of celebrity worship is highlighted by Lewis' serious, ice-cold performance and Bernhard's deliriously over-the-top comedic turn. DIR Martin Scorsese; SCR Paul D. Zimmerman; PROD Arnon Milchan. U.S., 1982, color, 109 min. RATED PG
