This is a 27" x 41" US one-sheet poster designed by Kaiser Creative for the 1983 Martin Scorcese film King of Comedy written by Paul D. Zimmerman and starring Robert De Niro as Rupert Pupkin. Plot summary: Rupert Pupkin is a delusional failure. He thinks he is destined to be a stand-up comedian, but the poor fellow has no talent or social skills. He tries unsuccessfully to insinuate himself into a relationship with famous comedian and talk show host Jerry Langford [Jerry Lewis]. He then makes plans with stalker Masha [Sandra Bernhard], also obsessed with Langford, to kidnap him; when they have done this Rupert demands the opening spot on Langford's television show as ransom, to which the network agrees. Rupert is well received on the show but jailed immediately afterwards.
