Dexter King plays straight man to unpleasant comedian Ron Anderson. He falls in love with Kate, a pretty nurse he meets when he is receiving injections for hay fever. When Anderson fires him, he acquires the title role in a musical stage version of "The Elephant Man". Kate dumps him when she suspects he is having an affair with a fellow cast member, and he must win her back. Written by

Did You Know?
The car that races to the Hospital at the end of the film (a blue Aston Martin registration "COMIC") belonged to Rowan Atkinson
. Dexter is pulled over by the police for speeding, just in the same way Atkinson was in real life, in the very same car. Atkinson received a driving ban as a result of the incident. See more

How was your day?
Not great. A nurses's day is always pretty grisly. A woman I was with gave birth to a baby in a lift.
Well, that was okay, er?
It would have been, but her husband slipped on the afterbirth and broke his collarbone.
Michael Fitzgerald's full credit in the movie is "Man with vacuum cleaner tube up his bottom." See more
