Lance Barton is a struggling comedian with one mission on his mind: landing a slot at the final Amateur Night Contest at the famed Apollo Theatre. Lance has one little problem though - he ain't that funny. However, an inept emissary from heaven is about to hit him with a much bigger problem when he mistakenly plucks Lance from a traffic accident - before it takes place. Since, by heavenly rule, no man gets into heaven before his time, and the choice of returning to his own body on Earth is impossible, Lance reluctantly agrees to occupy the body of a wealthy old white mogul, Charles Wellington, until a more suitable body can be found. Living in the body of a callous old white man would be bizarre enough for Lance without falling in love with Sontee, the beautiful woman publicly battling Wellington's company, while having to defend himself against Wellington's cheating wife and her plot to have him killed.
