Storyline

Bart arranges for Krusty to perform at a comedy festival where his old-fashioned gags go down very badly alongside more modern comics. Bart takes the disillusioned clown home where Krusty is appalled by all the merchandise bearing his name and relaunches himself as a critic of the consumer society and its greed.

Trivia

There is strong evidence The Last Temptation of Krust was intended to be a portrayal of the infamous comedian Bill Hicks. The black clothes, the smoking endlessly on stage, the style of his delivery and material all point to Krusty behaving like Hicks. However, this was not a complete emulation of him since he eventually capitulates to endorsing the Canyonero and Bill Hicks was highly critical of anyone already in the public eye endorsing any product whatsoever.

Quotes

[Driving home from Krusty's comedy show]
Homer Simpson: From now on, I'm going to be just like Krusty and tell it like it is! Marge, you're getting a little fat around the thighs.
Bart: Dad!
Homer Simpson: You too, Bart.
Marge: Oh Homer, be quiet, you're the fattest person in this car.
Homer Simpson: Aw... you didn't have to tell it like it is.
