Show Description
Develop a certain style and you can get away with anything. "Dr. Fox" a fake doctor gives a lecture and fool the entire audience. Murray, Shep's agent when he first came to NY and was looking for work while living in a Time Square Hotel, gets Shep a gig to do a lecture on a new V8 engine. He goes for the audition and is hired. After memorizing the script, he shows up to do the speech and is told his name is Dr. Youngson and he is from Detroit. Turns out the real Dr. Youngson is a boring engineer and so the auto company decided that since this was a very important presentation, they need to hire an actor.
