What do you get when you combine a corrupt gynecologist, plastic surgery look-a-likes, a flighty receptionist, a forgetful Holocaust survivor, and many more absurd characters? You get "Knock It Off: A Farce!" More…
It is January 23, 1973. Dr. Thomas Katz, a flat broke gynecologist, has been performing “illegal” procedures in his office to make ends meet. Petrified of losing his dwindling patient base with the upcoming Supreme Court decision he is forced to lease out two offices in his practice. One to a pair of plastic surgeons and the other to a dentist. What he doesn’t know is that one of the plastic surgeons is Marcia, his ex-wife and the dentist is his long-time mistress, Deidre. Deidre looks exactly like Marcia after undergoing plastic surgery. (Unbeknownst to her!) Marcia wants her alimony; Deidre wants to find her long-lost child. Both are expecting financial help from Thomas, who is dead broke. Enter Budd, Thomas and Marcia’s son, who arrives to ask his father to pay for a wedding to marry Bernadette, a pro-life activist. Terrified his girlfriend may discover his father’s controversial occupation he does whatever it takes to keep her from his father.
