The King of Comedy

 (1983)

The King of Comedy Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Martin Scorsese's The King Of Comedy is a funny depiction of the dangers of celebrity fandom. The ridiculously inept Rupert Rupkin, an aspiring comic, idolizes talk show host Jerry Langford.

For more about The King of Comedy and the The King of Comedy Blu-ray release, see the The King of Comedy Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Sandra Bernhard, Chuck Low, Shelley Hack, Tony Randall

The King of Comedy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The King of Comedy is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. The elements used for this presentation are in great shape, though it's important to realize that Scorsese intentionally utilized lo-fi videotape for the television sequences (see screenshots 5 and 16), which naturally result in a much softer and less detailed look (which in some cases include such anomalies as slight ghosting). Colors look natural, but are not overly suffused. Scorsese and cinematographer Fred Schuler capture some great Manhattan locations, and the outdoor sequences offer excellent detail and at times good depth of field. The general appearance here is somewhat on the soft side, however, especially in many dimly lit interior scenes. Close-ups reveal very good to excellent levels of fine detail, and contrast is nicely dialed in throughout the presentation.


The King of Comedy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The King of Comedy features a perfectly acceptable lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix that capably reproduces the film's fairly straightforward sound design. It is notable to hear the difference between that swingin' Jerry Langford Show theme music on the menu screen, where it's presented in LPCM 5.1, and the actual film, where it sounds considerably narrower due to its mono iteration, but for the film's dialogue and occasional cityscape environmental effects, the mono track suffices perfectly well. There's no damage of any kind to cause concern.
