In the movie The Clapper, Eddie and his friend Chris clap for a living as audience members on infomercials. They live a simple and content life, scraping by as the glitzy circus of Hollywood show-biz swirls around them.
Eddie’s only real excitement is his romance with local gas station attendant, Judy, a beacon of light in a sea of monotony. But soon, Eddie’s life is turned upside down when talk-show host Jayme Stillerman takes an interest in Eddie, launching a citywide media craze to uncover his true identity.
The newfound fame costs him his job and Judy, who disappears without a trace. With no other choice, Eddie embarks into the world of late-night TV on a quest to hunt down his lost love.
