Description by

Comics Joey Faye and Mickey Deems rode the coattails of the television slapstick revival by creating a pair of bumbling handymen in the short-lived "Mack and Myer for Hire" TV series. Faye claimed credit for the "Slowly I Turn" routine popularized by comedy acts such as Abbott and Costello and The Three Stooges.

Finders Weepers: Mack and Myer think they've hit the jackpot when they find an abandoned trunk and two wallets. Instead they find is a heap of trouble.

Dueling Fools: Cyrano de Bergerac gets the Mack and Myer treatment as the long-nosed Mackaruno is too shy to woo the lovely Rocksalt.

Mack & Myer Meet Jennie: Mack and Myer take on extra jobs to help lovely young Jennie get home to Greece.

Out on the Town: Mack and Myer had a good week and are flush with cash. They splurge on dinner at an expensive French restaurant. You can be sure disaster is on the menu.

Wacky Wizardry: A renowned magician's career goes up in smoke when he hires Mack and Myer as his inept assistants.
