It’s 1934, and the vaudeville team of Jerry Walker and Eve Williams is about to break into the big time with their own coast-to-coast radio comedy show. But Eve’s already tired of her Gracie Allenish “dumb blond” character and threatens to quit so that she can return to college and finish getting her degree in psychology. However, her plan founders when she learns that a young relative has embraced Bolshevism and given away all her money to the local Communist Party! Worse, a hard-bitten newspaper columnist begins to sniff around, and Eve and Jerry must prevent him from discovering that Eve is broke, brilliant and inadvertently supporting the Reds. Add to this mix two crazy gag writers, a dubious potential radio sponsor, Eve’s Yale professor fiancé, a stuffy lady from a publishing house, and a fictitious serial killer, and the result is a hilarious mix of one-liners, crosstalk, and wild physical comedy.
