Chip Baskets has always dreamed of being a classically trained clown. After flunking out of French clown college – probably due to his inability to understand French – he returns home to Bakersfield, California, where he moves in with his mother, Christine, bickers with his twin brother Dale, longs for his sophisticated Parisian ex-wife, and continues to pursue his professional clowning dream with the assistance of his friend/assistant/insurance adjuster, Martha. Zach Galifianakis stars as both Chip and Dale, with Louie Anderson as Christine and Martha Kelly in the role of Martha.
