Big Sam sends a couple of his men to change the mind of the comedian Joey Bishop (who looks remarkably like Joey Barnes) whose schedule is too full to open an act for him. The men are determined to bring Bishop back with them despite his refusal. Joey tries to use carrier pigeons to alert others to his situation. A surprise on the Jack Paar Show helps him out.

Joey's line to his pianist, "You haven't been the same since you left the White House," is a reference to former President Harry Truman, who was famous for playing the piano and occasionally performed on variety and talk shows after he left office. See more
