The story of Danny Rose is told in flashback, an anecdote shared amongst a group of comedians over lunch at New York’s Carnegie Deli. Rose’s one-man talent agency represents countless unorthodox, unsuccessful entertainers, including washed-up lounge lizard Lou Canova, whose career is on the rebound. On those rare occasions any of Danny’s acts do succeed, they invariably leave him for better representation.

Lou, who has a wife and three kids, is having an affair with a woman, Tina, who had previously dated a gangster (a man still in love with her). Lou wants her to accompany him to a big gig Danny has landed for him at the Waldorf Astoria, where he will perform in front of Milton Berle, who could potentially hire him for even bigger things. At the singer’s insistence, Danny acts as a “beard,” masquerading as Tina’s boyfriend to divert attention from the affair. Tina’s ex-boyfriend is extremely jealous, and believing Tina’s relationship with Danny to be real, he orders a hit on Danny, who finds himself in danger of losing both his client and his life. The ex-boyfriend’s brothers find Danny and Tina and hold them in an abandoned warehouse.
