**De Niro as yet another deluded psycho**

De Niro is Rupert Pitkin, a comedian who seeks to be as famous as his hero, Jerry Lewis. Pupkin could be Travis Bickle’s equally disturbed brother – both of them living in New York and both of them losing their minds in unison.

After much rejection, the crazed Pupkin decides to kidnap his hero and hold him for ransom until a studio gives him a big break. Jerry Lewis is impressive as the total bastard that Pupkin so admires.

A disturbing movie that is more relevant nowadays than ever since the advent of the Big Brother tv show which places national attention on people with no talent.

Martin Scorsese’s THE KING OF COMEDY was the lowest-grossing major studio film of 1982. It isn’t difficult to see why: It’s loaded with uncomfortable situations; there is no obvious protagonist; no sympathetic characters (the one that could potentially get our sympathy turns out to be a thief); and everyone is grating and/or unpleasant (even Tony Randall plays ???????????????????????????? as a demanding prick). This lack of popularity was the audience’s loss, as Paul Zimmerman graced Scorsese with a screenplay which was just as prescient on the topic of fame as Paddy Chayefsky’s NETWORK (1976) was on the future of television. In a day and age where television reality shows and online video platforms allow talent-bereft fame-seekers to offer their wares to an anesthetized public, De Niro’s Rupert Pupkin displays an uncanny ambition just by leaving his mother’s basement, much less his willingness to use crime as a means to his end.

Scorsese and De Niro’s underrated black comedy masterpiece.
‘The King Of Comedy’ is easily Martin Scorsese’s most underrated and misunderstood movie. Scorsese and Robert De Niro’s previous collaboration was the brilliant boxing biopic ‘Raging Bull’, generally regarded by most people as a masterpiece. Then the two made ‘The King Of Comedy’… What a brave move! You couldn’t find a more different movie, but one just as impressive and extraordinary. This movie is disliked by many, deliberately ignored by others. It’s a very uncomfortable film. It’s a (very) black comedy and is genuinely funny in places, but much of it is embarrassing to watch. Not because it is inept, but because of the believability of De Niro’s obnoxious and irritating “loser” and wanna be comic Rupert Pupkin. De Niro has made a lot of disappointing movies in the last few years but ‘The King Of Comedy’ reminds you of just how brilliant he can be. I can’t think of many actors who would be brave enough to play this part! Jerry Lewis is a performer I have always disliked, but he is excellent in this movie, probably because he is playing someone very close to himself in real life. The rest of the supporting cast aren’t the most obvious choices, led by confrontational comedienne Sandra Bernhard and the “forgotten” Charlie’s Angel Shelley Hack. Plus there are Tony Randall and a couple of other celebrities playing themselves, and a blink and you’ll miss it cameo by The Clash (!). I really admire Scorsese for taking such a risk with this movie, which is one of the most original and provocative ever released by a major Hollywood studio. Bravo! This is must see viewing for not only all Scorsese or De Niro fans, but anyone who appreciates unusual or difficult movies.

I’ve never been a great fan of either Robert De Niro or Martin Scorsese, but it’s hard to understand why this film was overlooked on its original release as it is much more interesting than some of their wildly overrated efforts like Raging Bull and Goodfellas. King of Comedy is one of those films that involves you to the extent that you feel embarrassed on behalf of Rupert Pupkin and the people he comes into contact with during his demented pursuit of Jerry Langford. In the latter role, Jerry Lewis, one of my least favourite comedians, is very convincing as the superficially pleasant talk-show host. Despite his weirdness, Pupkin is sympathetic to an extent and there is a nice twist whereby once he finally gets on air he turns out to be a passable comic rather than dying in front of the audience as expected. Twenty years ago the ending could have been read as ambiguous, was it real or just Rupert’s fantasy? Now, when just about everyone has their five minutes of fame there is no doubt that someone like Pupkin could become a celebrity.
