It's December 20th, 1970, and Elvis Presley has disappeared. No one, not even his wily manager, "The Colonel", knows of his whereabouts. But the Colonel is all shook up because he has racked up a secret debt -- and with the King himself missing, the only way to pay it off is to find an Elvis impersonator within 24 hours. Hijinks ensue as the Colonel takes desperate measures to replace a man who is irreplaceable, all while keeping the prying eyes of a nosy reporter at bay and figuring out what happened to the real Elvis.

Note: none of the "Elvises" in this show need to be able to sing or look like Elvis. In fact the less they're able to sing or look like Elvis the funnier it is!

"It gets wild and whacky faster than the Lisa Marie (Elvis' jet) could make a deep-fried peanut butter and banana sandwich run from Memphis to Denver."

"Unpretentious fun!"
