Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving a Blu-ray copy of King of Comedy: 30th Anniversary. It was released earlier in the week. I have not seen the movie, but it features Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis and Sandra Bernhard. I’m a fan of Robert De Niro and was a big fan of Jerry Lewis when I was a kid. And of course, Sandra Bernhard is pretty funny.
The King of Comedy Synopsis
Academy Award Winner Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis and Sandra Bernhard give mesmerizing performances in this “chilling black comedy” (TV Guide’s Movie Guide) that explores the painfully high and often hilarious price of fame. Desperate to be a star, struggling stand-up comedian Rupert Pupkin (De Niro) enlists the aid of his fanatical friend Masha (Bernhard) to kidnap talk show host Jerry Langford (Lewis). The ransom? A guest spot for Pupkin. The results? Outrageous! The King of Comedy stands as Scorsese’s prophetic masterpiece which confronts a celebrity culture that “looks more disturbingly current with each passing year” (Lucia Bozzola, All Movie Guide).
