A funny thing happens to talk show host Jerry Langford on his way to the studio. He's kidnapped by stand-up comedian Rupert Pupkin and his wacky sidekick. Langford is forced to give Pupkin a shot at the big time by allowing the struggling comic to perform his routine on Langford's show. What unfolds is an incredibly funny and poignant story about the darker side of comedy.
