Wanna-be comic Rupert Pupkin will do anything to get famous. He buttonholes his idol, the talk show host Jerry Langford, but Langford refuses to put Pupkin on the air. The increasingly unhinged comedian teams with a psychotic friend who has a not-very-healthy crush on the talk show host in a plan to kidnap Langford in one last-ditch effort at comedy stardom.
