Robert De Niro Is the Luckiest Aging Insult Comic in the World in The Comedian Trailer

By

If they stay in the game long enough, most insult comics will eventually get to live the fantasy Robert De Niro achieves in the new trailer for his upcoming movie The Comedian: winning the heart of a beautiful person 30 years his junior (in this case, Leslie Mann), achieving massive late-in-life internet fame, and finally telling off that smarmy sister-in-law he's never liked. The only difference is, most real-life comics experience all this as part of a hallucination brought on by hypothermia as they freeze to death outside of an open mic, Little Match Girl–style. Still, it's a pleasure to dream.
