Night Patrol (1984)

1984s Night Patrol is an odd "comedy" movie that was written by Murray Langston, who curiously enough is better known to most folks as his show business alter-ego The Unknown Comic. He plays Melvin, a schlub policeman who just got demoted to working the night shift and also has a burning desire to be a stand up comedian. A colorful crew of curious Hollywood notables fill out the cast and include: Linda Blair, Pat Paulsen, Jaye P. Morgan, Billy Barty, Sydney Lassick, Pat Morita, and Andrew Dice Clay in an early film role; credited here as Andy Clay.

While Murray Langston was the original screenwriter, several others are credited with assisting on the script and one of them is producer Bill Osco who is also known for being a pioneer in "adult" film making, producing titles such as: Mona: The Virgin Nymph (1970), Flesh Gordon (1974), or Alice in Wonderland: An X-Rated Musical Fantasy (1976).
