The Jerk, Too is a 1984 American made-for-television comedy film starring Mark Blankfield as title character Navin Johnson, in a reworked version of the 1979 Steve Martin film The Jerk.[1] While Martin is credited as "executive producer" of the film, he did not write or appear in the film.[2]


Navin Johnson sets out to attend the wedding of Marie, his pen pal in California, but runs into a gang of hobos, led by a schemer named Diesel. Diesel discovers Navin's skill at playing poker and takes Navin to Las Vegas where they win enough to travel to Los Angeles in style.
