Doris' friend, ex-boxer turned dance instructor Duke Farentino, is starting yet another career, as nightclub headliner. The dance school isn't generating business, so he figured performing would be a good way to get his name out into the business. After the opening night show which featured Duke and "his Duchesses" in a comedic song & dance routine, Duke even admits that it was a fiasco. He decides to throw in the towel. However, Doris convinces him that he needs to train harder and hone his act. Because of Doris' advice, Duke finagles Doris into being his manager/trainer, which includes vetting his material and being his practice partner. Even if Doris is able to help Duke put together a good act, they will still have the problem of overcoming the bad press from his first show for anyone to hire him. Doris will have to decide how far she will go to get Duke back on stage.
