Watch Robert De Niro Do Standup in the Trailer for 'The Comedian'

Watch Robert De Niro Do Standup in the Trailer for 'The Comedian'
It's been scientifically proven that once-great actor Robert De Niro is in exclusively shitty movies now, but many hoped he could reclaim his glory with the forthcoming flick The Comedian.

Unfortunately, you'll have to strain your eyes like a terrible De Niro impression to see anything that resembles a good movie here.

Starring De Niro as a washed up comedian who tries to woo Leslie Mann (and becomes a staple at the Comedy Cellar in the process), The Comedian offers tangible proof that the lives of fictional New York comedians are officially played out as movie fodder.

There's an arsenal of cameos, including Billy Crystal, Danny DeVito, Harvey Keitel and plenty others.

Watch the trailer for The Comedian below.
