The King of Comedy

Body

In his own mind, Rupert Pupkin (Robert De Niro) is the next big comedy sensation to hit primetime television - all he needs is someone to listen to his jokes. Scorsese's dark comedy rings true as a prophetic vision of fame-hunger and media frenzies to come, as Pupkin - obsessed with talk show host Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis) - goes to drastic lengths to have his 15 minutes of fame. Stalking Jerry with psychotic fellow obsessive Masha (Sandra Bernhard), they hatch a plan to kidnap their idol...

With Joker taking inspiration from classic Scorsese hits Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy, we’ll be screening them to complement our run of Joker from a 70mm print.
