Bobcat Goldthwait, one of our era’s most outspoken, outrageous and iconic comedic talents, will be in person at the Regent to present his legendary directorial debut, which also happens to be one of the most underappreciated films of the 1990s.
Perhaps today’s current obsession with creepy clowns started in 1992 -- with "90 glorious minutes of yayo-snorting, discussions on the merits of “peanut butter pussy” and mime-bashing. Of 'Shakes The Clown', Goldthwait has said he based the clowns’ dysfunctional and self-destructive behaviors on the backstage antics of fellow stand-up comedians. Fittingly, the film is populated with a who’s-who and who-will-be of comedy: Adam Sandler, Blake Clark, Robin Williams, Tim Kazurinsky, Kathy Griffin, and Tom Kenny (future voice of Spongebob Squarepants). If you didn’t think the backstage of The Laugh Factory on Sunset Blvd. circa 1988 was a scary place, we promise you will now!" (The Cinefamily)
