Hollywood celebrities are unter attack, as Jack opens with his monolog. To tease Brittain about a tax on movies, a movie goer from the UK is interviewed. Trudy Irwin is accompanied by the Jerry Fielding orchestra to sing, It Was Just One of Those Things.
The focus is on little known people who mean absolutely nothing. People like your meter man, or Jack’s guest person he interviews, a woman who seems to have trouble in keeping her husbands. What other mundane things does she have in her life?
Jack talks about what it’s like being a Summer replacement, and what it means for his career when the Summer ends. Who will be Jack’s Winter replacement? An audition of some possibilities begins. A tall midget, who isn’t very attractive wants to sing. A French magician is asked about if French bathing suits are all they say they are. Will his tricks be impressive? Guess who is the final contestant? Did you read the show title? Jack Benny pops in to share jokes with Jack Paar. What’s he been up to this Summer?
To prove how funny his lines on his show are, Jack Benny reads all the lines he has in his script. Maybe a little violin music will win the spot for him? Could there be a “Wait a Minute” moment for Jack Paar? Which of the 3 will win the Winter replacement slot?
