Charlie’s an out-of-work actor currently working as a waiter in Manhattan restaurants
both elegant and shabby. Through a series of hilarious encounters with restaurant
patrons, played by an amusing gallery of characters, Charlie becomes involved in
their intertwining stories: the girl desperately trying to eat snails and oysters
to please her fiancé; the young lovers so intent on each other they cannot order
dinner; the timid man who never gets a waiter. The action is uninterrupted and the
comedy never stops.
