De Niro stars in 'The Comedian' — love letter to New York comics - The Mercury News

Robert De Niro plays Jackie Burke, a once-famous sitcom star who yearns for respect as a stand-up comic. He resents his fans for associating him with the character he used to play on the hit “Eddie’s Home,” and he bristles when they call him Eddie. Jackie isn’t always kind to his long-suffering manager (Edie Falco, disappointingly underused), and he insults the patrons at the small-town clubs where he performs. After tussling with a heckler at one of his shows, Jackie is sentenced to jail and community service. He’s working at a New York City soup kitchen when he meets Harmony (Leslie Mann), who’s also clocking community-service hours. She tells Jackie that she watched “Eddie’s Home” as a kid. Jackie eventually asks Harmony out, and she tells him straight away that she won’t have sex with him (there’s an obvious 30-year age difference between them). He takes her to a comedy club, and the friendly outing turns into a quid pro quo: She agrees to be his date for his niece’s wedding if he’ll accompany her to a birthday dinner with her smarmy, overbearing father, Mac (Harvey Keitel).

Though Jackie bears some resemblance to Jack... He sells Jackie as a stand-up, after spending months with real comics to prepare for the part. Insult comic and frequent celebrity roaster Jeff Ross helped write Jackie’s routines. The cast is a hoot, including Danny DeVito and Patti LuPone as Jackie’s put-upon brother and sister-in-law, Charles Grodin as chief of the Friars Club and Cloris Leachman as.
