The Ladies Man

Synopsis: Because of his salacious language, late-night radio advice-show host Leon Phelps, along with his sweet and loyal producer Julie, is fired from his Chicago gig. They can't find another job. About that time, two things happen: he gets a letter from a wealthy former lover who offers to take care of him (but she doesn't sign her real name, so Leon, an inveterate Casanova, has no idea who she is), and a group of angry cuckolds, all of whom have surprised their wives in flagrante delicto with Leon (who has a distinctive tattoo on his booty), are closing in, armed and dangerous. Can he find the sugar mommy and escape the wrath of the mob of husbands? What about Julie?

Don't argue with me about it.

I don't care if you are a doctor.

No, we promise there

won't be any more vulgar material.

You gotta get a thumb

and just stick it up in there.

Actually, get two thumbs up

in there, you know, like the Fonz.

Like this- Hey."

[ Chuckles]

There may be weird smells afterwards,

but don't worry. just take a shower.

Hey, go ahead, caller.

You got The Ladies Man.

[Man Narrating] No one knows

where Leon came from exactly,

but he started out life on

the steps of a majestic mansion.

The master of the house

was a great man...

who surrounded himself

with the world's most beautiful objects.

He had everything he wanted,

except a son.

Young Leon was taken

into this world...

and raised as one of their own.

And in that warm

family environment,.

Leon developed into quite

a stylish young man.

He learned everything a bright kid

would wanna know about--

stereo systems

and, of course, love.

In this magical kingdom,

the king shared everything

with him.

Only one thing was off-limits.

But Leon being Leon,

the day arrived when the benevolent

proprietor and Leon parted ways.

Poor little Leon

was thrown out into the cold,

much like Moses

in the days of old.

After that it Wash "t easy

for the little man, but he got along.

He always did.

Not because he was smart

and not because he was rich,

but because...

the ladies loved Leon Phelps.

- How did he do it?

- [ Bar Patrons In Unison] Hey, Leon.

Well, I guess you'd better

ask the man yourself.

Lester, how come you tell that story

every time we walk into this bar?

I don't know. Maybe there's somebody

out there who don't know you.

Yeah, right. It's the same five

or six people in this place.

- How'd your show go tonight?

- Oh, yeah, good question.
