Jackie Gleason plays Jerry Giles (note the same initials), a popular TV comedian who is apparently based on Gleason himself. Art Carney plays a reporter who is assigned to get "the real story" on the beloved comedian Giles. Carney interviews the people who know Giles, and he discovers that the funny man isn't so jolly in private life.
