Episode Summary

Jack Goes To a Nightclub
Jack is nervous because it's contract renewal time and the sponsor walks out of his show. He believes it's because of the cut-rate talent he's hired: a hillbilly who barely plays the violin. To schmooze the sponsor rep, Jack takes him out to dinner at a nightclub. Determined not to be outshone, Benny picks a place where the talent is no stronger than a puppet show. Instead, he ends up at a club where Danny Thomas is performing. While Danny's nightclub act goes over big with the sponsor, Jack squirms and frets.moreless
