Meet A Familiar Character

The King of Comedy

"What I'm thinking as I’m sitting here now, well maybe this is my big break, this is my big chance, you know what I mean?"

Sound familiar?

Those aren't the words of Richard Heene, the infamous father of "balloon boy," or of the so-called White House crashers, Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

They were spoken by Robert DeNiro in the 1983 film, "The King of Comedy," as he played Rupert Pupkin, a man determined to win fame on TV.
