Storyline

Is there discrimination against clowns? An historian, who is a clown, provides background and introduces us to three clowns who reflect on life in the US: a physician, an auto mechanic, and an aging mom who's ill. The doc has made it to the ranks of a top profession but still faces prejudice; he goes to the principal's office at his son's school where the lad is charged with clowning around. The mechanic has brought his mute, horn-blowing cousin over from the old country, and a dissatisfied customer talks racist trash to them. Clarabelle Confetti, the aging mom, laments that her son has married a mime, and their kids are confused about who they are. Can't we all just get along? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

who you calling a clown,HONKY!!
23 January 2002 | by bconnSee all my reviews

An incredibly clever piece on racism that allows us to laugh at and learn from.In all my viewings I have been most amazed by the reactions of caucasians that watch with me. They seem the most offended by it, where as the people of color that have also seen it, seem to enjoy it and accept it as a reality of what is. Brian McDonald should be lauded for taking racism out of the black/white paradigm and giving it back to us in a fresh and different form.Well directed with full character arcs(almost non existent in shorts) and just plain entertaining(once again another thing rarely seen in shorts). Check it out if your interested in racism,in clowns or if you just want to laugh, then pass it on.
