SETTING UP THE SCENE:
The story of Danny Rose (Woody Allen) is told by a gathering of grizzled stand-up comedians sharing a nosh at the Carnegie Deli. Danny is a talent agent, quite possibly the worst ever — his acts include a stuttering ventriloquist and a one-legged tap dancer. He becomes involved with a washed-up lounge singer and his gangster-moll girlfriend Tina (Mia Farrow). When success improbably comes their way, they leave Danny for a more established manager. A crushed (and wiser) Danny hosts a Thanksgiving meal for his clients as a remorseful Tina seeks to make amends.
