Watch a clown’s road to legitimacy in ‘Baskets,’ FX’s new comedy (premieres Jan. 21)


A man from Bakersfield, California, dared to dream big – so he enrolled at an esteemed clowning school in Paris. Chip Baskets eventually returned home in defeat and took a job as a local rodeo clown, his first step in his tortured road to clown legitimacy.

This is the backdrop for “Baskets,” the new FX comedy starring Zach Galifianakis, which premieres Jan. 21. The pilot episode of “Baskets” was co-written by executive producers Galifianakis, Emmy Award-winner Louis C.K., and Emmy Award-nominated writer and director Jonathan Krisel.
