Blood of the Vines: The King Of Comedy

Yuck yuck, glug glug: Randy drinks with a King.

In Martin Scorsese’s King of Comedy, Robert De Niro plays Rupert Pupkin, a demented fan obsessed with the late-night talk show host played by Jerry Lewis.  If De Niro’s digs in Taxi Driver creeped you out, what did you think of his basement room in this movie?  The fake talk show set – complete with cardboard cutouts of host and guests – and the pencil-drawn audience to which he works while fantasizing about being the funny man onstage take delusion to new heights.

I began to wonder what kind of wine Rupert Pupkin would drink.  All I could think of were the cheesy one-liners printed on a thousand and one wine-related knick-knacks.  As I heard them in my head – in Pupkin’s voice – they seemed to fit perfectly.
