Poster for The Comedian

Robert De Niro is a stand-up comic in this slice-of-life tale from Oscar-winning director Taylor Hackford (Ray). All-star cast includes Leslie Mann, Danny DeVito, Billy Crystal, Harvey Keitel and Edie Falco. More

An aging comic icon, Jackie (De Niro), has seen better days. Despite his efforts to reinvent himself and his comic genius, the audience only wants to know him as the former television character he once played. Already a strain on his younger brother (DeVito) and his wife (Patti LuPone), Jackie is forced to serve out a sentence doing community service for accosting an audience member. While there, he meets Harmony (Mann), the daughter of a sleazy Florida real estate mogul (Keitel), and the two find inspiration in one another, resulting in surprising consequences.

Even with a bona fide icon at its center, The Comedian doesn't dig deep enough to add anything substantial to the subgenre.
