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.

Quotes

Reporter: [When Krusty announces his retirement from show business] But, Krusty, why now? Why not 20 years ago?
Krusty the Clown: 'Cause comedy ain't funny anymore. Instead of time-tested jokes about women drivers and doctor bills, you got some big-chin schlub reading typos from the Palookaville Post. Well, here's a headline for you: "Nobody cares."
[Everyone laughs]
Jay Leno: Hey, I washed your hair.
