The Clash in Martin Scorsese’s ‘The King of Comedy’ – Musician Movie Cameos

Talk about a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo: The Clash show up for such a brief moment in Martin Scorsese’s 1983 movie ‘The King of Comedy’ that their appearance is more trivia question than career milestone. The band’s Mick Jones, Joe Strummer and Paul Simonon (plus some of their cohorts, like manager Kosmo Vinyl, singers Ellen Foley and Pearl Harbour and filmmaker Don Letts) receive credit as “Street Scum” in the movie’s credits.

Even though ‘The King of Comedy’ (which stars Robert De Niro and Jerry Lewis) tanked at the box office, it’s become a cult classic over the years. Just watch closely for Strummer, Jones and the rest of the crew or you’ll miss them.
