Kiss My Act
A contemporary adaptation of Edmond Rostand's play "Cyrano de Bergerac." Samantha "Sam" Berger, a bartender at a New York comedy club, cannot find the courage to perform her own material. Having spent her life as a "big" girl in a beauty-obsessed world, she is convinced that only petite, curvy girls get successful careers in show business. Her strategy is to give her best one-liners to Jennie, one of the club's wannabe standup comedians. Jennie is talent-free, but compensates with bathing-suit-model assets. When Michael True, the talent scout for the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, makes his annual visit to find prospects for this major career-making showcase, he is captivated with Jennie -- both on and off-stage. Jennie begs Sam to help her keep Michael interested and amused. Sam agrees, but soon finds herself falling in love. Michael is too, but is it with Sam's wit or Jennie's beauty?
