The Karaoke King is a 2007 comedy film directed by Dan Mackler and JJ Ruscella. The film is loosely based on William Shakespeare's play, Julius Caesar.


It revolves around a fictional bar named Lil's in Central Florida, known as the birthplace of karaoke in the United States. For as long as anyone can remember, one man named Eddie Bowman has won the weekly Wednesday night karaoke competition. The film follows one fateful night where Eddie battles between his long-time girlfriend, Nikki, and his long-time nemesis, Rupert Goldfine to determine who is going to be the next reigning Karaoke King.
