Still as groundbreaking as it was 30 years ago,Martin Scorcese’s newly restored “The King of Comedy” will close the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.

The Tribeca Festival (TFF), presented by American Express®, is thrilled have Martin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy, restored in association with The Film Foundation, Regency Enterprises and Twentieth Century Fox, as the closing night film of the 12th annual Festival on Saturday, April 27 at Tribeca BMCC PAC.

Directed by Martin Scorsese, written by Paul D. Zimmerman, produced by Arnon Milchan, and starring Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Diahnne Abbott and Sandra Bernhard, The King of Comedy was originally released in 1983. This darkly funny film was ahead of its time—most notably for its groundbreaking commentary on the reality TV culture and the fine line between fame and notoriety.

“I was a big fan of the script and was very excited to do it with Marty and happy that we finally made it. The fact that it’s been restored (hard to believe so many years have passed) is even all the better, and I can’t wait to see it on our closing night,” said Robert De Niro.
