Hey guys, Jana here,
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is readying ‘The Comedian‘ for Blu-ray, DVD and digital release May 2. Robert De Niro (‘Goodfellas‘) stars in this film about an aging comedian. Also featured in the film is a star-packed cast all under the direction of Taylor Hackford (‘Ray‘). DeNiro stars with Leslie Mann (‘Knocked Up‘), Danny DeVito (‘Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘), Edie Falco (‘The Sopranos‘), Charles Grodin (‘Dave‘), Cloris Leachman (‘The Last Picture Show‘), Patti LuPone (‘Penny Dreadful‘), Harvey Keitel (‘Bugsy‘), Lucy Devito (‘Leaves of Grass‘) and Billy Crystal (‘When Harry Met Sally‘).
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 sister-in-law (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.
