Subtle, hilarious humor
27 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With a premise this unlikely (though the choice of Bakersfield was intriguing, and echoed "Baskets" nicely), I expected to watch a few minutes then move on, but I watched to the end and was sad it ended.

Wonderfully nuanced humor with a delightfully self-referential twist, the sad-sack doesn't-fit-anywhere loser trying to be a French clown, never realizing that he is the very embodiment of a French clown, complete with pratfalls, botched attempts at grace and beauty, and, above all, his unflagging and ultimately optimistic belief in his quest.

It's understandable that many will dislike this show, for the humor is probably an acquired quirk of a particular personality, but for anyone with that particular quirk, the humor displayed within is fine indeed.
