The King of Comedy

Scorsese: Underworld U.S.A.
(PG) USA – 1 hr 49 min  
1982 · d. Martin Scorsese
Starring Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Sandra Bernhard

It doesn’t matter that Rupert Pupkin (Robert De Niro) is a lousy comic. He knows that stardom can be his, if only he can score a spot on the late-night show hosted by the legendary comedian Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis). Rupert’s prepared to do whatever it takes to get his time in the spotlight—even if that means taking his idol hostage. In this age of media saturation and fame obsession, Scorsese’s pitch-black comedy is more striking than ever.
