The King of Comedy

In anticipation of Todd Phillips's forthcoming failed-comedian crime drama Joker, watch Martin Scorsese's classic failed-comedian satire, starring Robert De Niro and Sandra Bernhard as a couple of stalkers who kidnap a talk-show host (played by Jerry Lewis) in a bid for fame and love. A notorious flop, this twisted black comedy has since made the New York Times Guide to the Best 1,000 Movies Ever Made and similar lists.
