Berle's guests include actor Jackie Cooper, singer Eddie Fisher, and comedienne Dagmar. Milton demonstrates the trials and tribulations of hosting a variety television show, complete with unoriginal staff, dim-witted crew, squabbling guest-stars - as well as the star who's convinced that his writers aren't giving him enough jokes. The story is told Dragnet-style, complete with Dragnet musical themes and stingers. Written by
Did You Know?
These are the scripts the guest stars will soon begin to read - those that can read. The big concern of the guest stars is the number of jokes they have, so the first thing they do is to count the jokes - those who can count. But what of the star who thinks he doesn't have enough jokes? It's the same problem every week... the star with the smallest talent makes the biggest disturbance.
Himself - Host
I haven't got enough jokes! I just haven't got enough jokes. Fine writers - the jokes they gave me could fit ...
I'm Sitting on Top of the World
