Stalking Fame - The King of Comedy review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
09/06/2009

King of Comedy is no laugh; instead it features a sinister, uncomfortable undercurrent. It’s said everyone has five minutes of fame, some accidental; others grasp an opportunity or take matters into their own hands and court infamy. Rupert Pupkin tries them all without much success, despite his comedy talent. If only he put more effort into show business than stalking Jerry Langford. The real performance comes from Bernhard, very disturbing and crazed! A very interesting take on celebrity and something different from Scorsese.
