In a dystopian city, aspiring comedian Sam Coex (Steve Munroe) murders Joey Myers (Jeff Pirie), the leading comic on the club circuit, and takes his place in the limelight. Soon after, Sam hooks up with drug-addict stripper Ann (the beautiful but untalented Berderia Timini), who is the cause of his downfall.<br/><br/>I first saw The Comic at the legendary Scala cinema in King&#39;s Cross, at an event called Splatterfest &#39;90. Since IMDb says that the film was made in 1985, I can only assume that it languished unreleased for quite a few years on account of it being so completely and utterly awful. It should have stayed on the shelf, in my opinion; what were the organisers thinking when they added this to the programme? I recall that the film was so poorly received at Splatterfest that its director Richard Driscoll, who was present at the screening, sloped off without saying a word.<br/><br/>Having just watched the film again after 30 years, I can confirm that the film is every bit as awful as I remembered it to be. Worse, in fact: it can now add &#39;looking horribly dated&#39; to its long list of cinematic offences. I hate this film with every fibre of my being. I hate the dreadful dialogue and corny performances. I hate Coex&#39;s terrible orange hair (Coex is supposed to be a top comedian, but his hair is the only funny thing about him). I hate the over-use of a smoke machine (99% of the film is swathed in smoke, Driscoll clearly a man who likes to get his money&#39;s worth). I hate the gaudy coloured lighting. I hate Coex&#39;s badly wall-papered apartment. I hate the totalitarian guards with their stupid little ponytails (what I like to call &#39;punytails&#39;). To be honest, I hate everything about this film and everyone involved for making such a joyless train-wreck.<br/><br/>1/10. Definitely in my Top Ten Worst Films Ever list, and I&#39;ve seen a lot of rubbish.

When I picked up a copy of The Comic at a truck stop for $1, I expected a bad movie. But I never expected something this horrible. I thought it would be a trashy horror film with a comedian who murders people while telling lame jokes. The box said &quot;He&#39;s a real cut-up!&quot;, suggesting such a movie. But instead of a campy horror film, we get a confusing, boring and pretentious foreign film that doesn&#39;t make the least bit of sense. It was a half-hour into the movie that I realized that it was in a post-apocolyptic future, and after that, it kept on jumping back and forth between flash-back and dream sequence, that I didn&#39;t know what in the blue hell was happening. I think the movie makers tried to put a bunch of symbolizm and meaning into many of scenes, but in a crappy film like this, it doesn&#39;t really matter at all. I almost fell asleep during this movie, and I love bad movies. Unless you like sitting through three hours of hellish tedium, don&#39;t watch The Comic.

Like the guy who posted the first comment I bought this film for only 1GBP, I knew the film was going to be bad. I hoped that it would be in the so bad it&#39;s good category. It&#39;s so much more than that, it&#39;s appalling, it&#39;s the pits, it is without doubt the worst film I&#39;ve ever seen, I had to watch it in five sittings. It&#39;s 89 minutes of the hoariest clichés and cod psychology. It has the worst cast, the worst sets, the cheapest and nastiest special effects. I could go on but I don&#39;t want to over egg the pudding ! <br/><br/>I&#39;ve not seen every film ever made so I&#39;m not qualified to call it the worst film ever made but I can&#39;t imagine that any other film could be worse than this. Like the guy who made the first post, I too like bad films. If &#39;The Producers&#39; (you know, Zero Mostel &amp; Gene Wilder) had picked this script, it would have totally spoilt that movie for their theatre audience would have walked out and never come back.<br/><br/>It&#39;s a howler, watch it with a companion because you&#39;ll be begging them to kill you before the film is halfway through. Druggies save yourself some money, you don&#39;t need any mind altering drugs, just watch this film it will be a trip. If finding the worst film ever is you&#39;re Holy Grail, find this, buy it, take it back to your Camelot and stick it in ye olde DVD player, watch it and then write to thank me for putting you on to this.<br/><br/>I will treasure this film for ever. Thank you Richard Driscoll !!!!<br/><br/>PS, does anyone know if any of the cast or crew ever worked again, apart from in McDonalds that is ?<br/><br/>PPS, if you only see one bad film before you die, make sure it&#39;s this one.
