WHAT FONT WAS USED IN POSTER?
There are three fonts used in The King Of Comedy poster. The “KING” uses Gill Sans Condensed UltraBold. The smaller “THE” and “OF” are probably Avant Garde Gothic, which was used with Gill Sans in the title sequence. Optima is used for the “COMEDY” and other text on the poster.
