The Amazing Harvey, by Don Passman
The Amazing Harvey is a magician, a substitute teacher, and a jerk and he is in big trouble when his DNA is found inside a murdered woman whom he claims to have never met. So he calls Fat Hannah to represent him, and -- surprise -- Fat Hannah is no longer fat. He can't afford her fee, and the schools won't hire a substitute teacher suspected of murder, so he starts working in her office, filing her paperwork badly and helping investigate his case. I can't figure out who the real jerk is, Harvey or Passman.
