Gray W. Boone knows he was born to be a stand-up comedian.
It's the rest of the kids in his class who think he's just a goon. Then the Floyd Hicks Junior High School Talent Show is announced, and
Gary starts practicing hos routine nonstop. Gary is sure this will be his big break-he'll make everyone laugh AND win the $100 prize.
But when an outrageous surprise threatens to turn his debut into a disaster,
it looks as if the biggest joke of all may be on Gary.
