His sponsor walks out on Jack's show, when his sponsor's in town for contract renewal, so Jack's afraid to take him to a nightclub featuring a comic competitor. A puppet show seems a safe (and cheap) alternative, but filling in for the sore-throated puppeteer is golden throated Danny Thomas, whose charity and charm entrance the sponsor, but paralyze Jack.
Did You Know?
Danny, it was just wonderful having you on the show, and I want to tell you, you are not only a fine artist and really a great comedian, but you are a great guy. You know, I understand that the check that I'm giving you for this show, that you are donating to charity.
Well - yes, Jack, I was going to donate it to charity, but then I changed my mind.
Well, after I found out how much you're paying me, I was ashamed.
