Shakes the Clown (1991)

R 03/13/1992 (US) ComedyCrime 1h 27m

Loved by children. Desired by women. Adored by bartenders everywhere.


Shakes plods about his duties as party clown, and uses all of his free time getting seriously drunk. Binky, another clown, wins the spot on a local kiddie show, which depresses Shakes even more, and his boss threatens him with unemployment if he can't get his act under control.
