After he bombs horribly in front of an influential Las Vegas audience that includes his comedy legend father (Jerry Lewis), aspiring comedian Tommy Fawkes (Oliver Platt) returns to his childhood home of Blackpool, England, to find an unknown young comedian whose act he can take over. There, he meets Katie Parker (Leslie Caron), a singer who was friends with his parents in their youth. Her son, Jack (Lee Evans), is an erratically brilliant comedian who holds a secret about Tommy's father.
