After the client, a famous comedian, had an accident, the production team needs a new star. The choice falls on the clumsy, but hilarious in everyday life, hotel boy. But on stage he is forced to follow the script - not funny. Only when his producers let him down and he is back alone, he can bring up his talent and becomes overnight an acclaimed comedian. Among the stars playing themselves in Lewis' satire on the show business is: Peter Lorre in his last role.
