Makin' Jake

Paul Whitington

If ever there was a character who's difficult to imagine outside his natural habitat, it's Naked Camera's Jake Stevens, the whistling twit who assails the good people of Dublin with his bizarre schemes and unreasonable requests. And yet in this new series Jake is on the road, criss-crossing America in the hope of making it big.

His first stop, naturally enough, is Hollywood, where he receives acting tips from such industry luminaries as Lou Ferrigno (the original Incredible Hulk) and Eric Estrada (does anyone remember CHiPs?). Then he'll plunge into deepest America, seeing how his strange accent and newspaper gesticulations go down in the likes of Nashville and Las Vegas.
