This risque comedy follows the exploits of a former burlesque comedian who blunders into a time machine and ends up captured by nasty Neandrathals and sentenced to death by their leader. Fortunately, the queen of the cavemen saves his hide. Unfortunately, the randy comic gets himself in deeper trouble by putting the make on a particular maiden. Suddenly he finds himself in caveman court. Their antics remind him so much of his vaudeville act that he begins performing it. He is a hit, for who better to appreciate fine vaudeville than cavemen. Soon he becomes the new king. Unfortunately, he accidentally trips into the infernal time machine and ends up back where he started, wishing he could leave modern America for the more "civilized" prehistoric past.
