)-- If you're a comedian and the world's fate is in your hands, it's no laughing matter.
Beamed aboard an alien spaceship, Las Vegas funny man Sam E. Lakeside is forced to participate in a plan to rob the earth of its oil. When the shape-shifting aliens – who take on the form of Trixie Norton, Nat King Cole and others they’ve seen on TV – and their leader, a power-hungry mobster, murder Sam’s best friend and manager, Sam vows revenge. He recruits a blacklisted comic book writer and the mobster’s girlfriend, and drags them cross-country to thwart the aliens. Their journey takes them to New York City and the Steve Allen Show, where the key to the alien’s conquest lies. Sam, is forced to choose between what he wants most in the world – to be a star – or the planet’s survival.
“I always thought of the 1950’s as an exciting period,” Lowy has said, “the threat of the atom bomb, the integration of Little Rock High School, and the birth of rock and roll. I wanted to recreate that unique period in our history.”
