The King of Comedy is a 1983 American comedy about a demented would-be stand-up comic who becomes obsessed with a more successful colleague. At first he tries semi-legal ways to get close to the man, like repeatedly trying to get on his talk show. When those (inevitably) fail, he joins forces with a female stalker to kidnap the comedian. He then negotiates with the authorities and tells them that he wants a spot on his victim's T.V. show. They give it to him - and the studio audience has no idea that a kidnapping is actually going on, but assume it's all an act.
