'The Comedian' Trailer: Robert De Niro Yuks It Up as a Broken-Down Insult Comic

In 1983, Robert De Niro starred as Rupert Pupkin, a crazed fan who yearns desperately to be a stand-up comic, in the ironically titled The King of Comedy. Now 33 years later, the seven-time Oscar nominee (he’s won two statuettes) is in contention for nod number eight with his lead role in The Comedian, a darkly humorous film set in the strange world of comedy clubs.

The story is too old to be commented.
