Storyline

Chip Baskets has a dream: become a classically trained French clown in Paris. Things don't go as well as he'd like, though, largely because of an impenetrable language barrier. With his lack of success overseas and mounting financial problems, Chip moves back home to Bakersfield, Calif., which presents other challenges for the wannabe jester. Going back home means having to confront his past, and compete with his siblings for his mother's approval. Even though he didn't make it as a clown in France, Chip is sort of living his dream -- as a rodeo clown. Written by Jwelch5742

Simple drama about life's journey, yet strangely the simplicity makes me fall in love.
21 March 2018 | by sinchan_masaoSee all my reviews

At first impression I thought the series is about Zach goofing around as clowns. But it turns out to be so much much more. Although running time is short, it tells about love, friendship, relationship and life in general in a beautiful, non-boring way. The story can be really depressing at times and that's where Zach's and Louie's actings really shine. I get bored quickly with most drama series, yet somehow I am hooked with this one. I can't think of other series that is similar to this, may be Flaked is the most similar. I love Flaked and I LOVE this.
