Inspired to include his crew in comic sketches after witnessing a David Letterman skit in which the host cracked wise with the cue-card holder, Larry (Garry Shandling) proposes the idea to a less-than-enthusiastic Artie (Rip Torn). Despite Artie's initial reservations (as well as some malicious meddling by a jealous Hank [Jeffrey Tambor]), the skits seem to work until the staff becomes more concerned with auditioning than performing their jobs. When guest Courteney Cox suggests that Larry and herself perform a skit together, Larry begins to have second thoughts about the idea.
