Red plays the clown on vaudeville trying to get an act together when he meets up with Maisie who just lost her booking. They team up and flop miserably.
They then run across a man who offers to set them up in his business only to get them into the business far enough to get them indicted while he takes off. Maisie and Red fall for each other, but Red already has a fiancé back home. He can't get the nerve up to tell his old flame it's over with so Maisie hits the road also, right before the cops show up.
She accidentally runs into the nice man who helped them out and gets suspicious.
