Watch Baskets

A man with dreams of becoming the world's best clown must face the harsh realities of life in the suburban American southwest. After getting kicked out of a world-renowned Parisian clown school, Chip Baskets loses his French girlfriend (who had only dated him for a green card), moves into a motel, and gets a gig as a rodeo clown. He soon learns that Bakersfield locals have little appreciation for clowning as an art form, presumably only amused when the cake-faced loonies get kicked in the teeth by a steer. The world sees Baskets as a delusional loser, penniless and going nowhere. Aside from his Costco-employee friend, Martha, in whom he refuses to acknowledge he is romantically interested, it seems that Baskets' loved ones have forgotten him in much the same way as the world has forgotten clowns. Baskets is the brainchild of acclaimed actor-comedian and "Between Two Ferns" host, Zach Galifinakis, and is produced by Louis CK.
