The King of Comedy

You’ve got a movie with Robert DeNiro and Jerry Lewis. You’ve got a solid plot about a fan obsessing over a celebrity he admires. You’ve got a large dose of drama with a dash of comedy. You’ve got great acting and an enjoyable movie. You’ve got The King of Comedy, which even inspired the R.E.M. song dealing with similar topics (and boasting a similar name). Give it a shot and throw in your two cents. -pm

This topic brings to mind the new documentary by spike lee coming out on august 18th titled "The Kings of Comedy." It is one of the few movies I have been looking forward to for a while. Anytime you get Steve Harvey with anyone including Cedric the Entertainer and DL Hughley then your money is well spent.

Matt, yeup, that's part of why I mentioned it. Saw that promo and said, "Wow! Those two titles are substantially similar!"

As I like to say, Spoor: If you're Ping, Ping hard.

Oh yeah, I mean "If you're GONNA ping...".

Anyhooch, I saw "The Original Kings of Comedy" on Sunday night. I must say I was somewhat disappointed. How can you have four seperates comedians all doing the same "white people do this/black people do that" joke? Live comedy is one of the greatest nights out you can have these days, but if I have dropped cash to see that live I would be mighty sore.

What is this then?
