''Shakes The Clown'' is a 1992 movie written/directed by and starring Creator/BobcatGoldthwait as the titular character, an alcoholic clown. It features cameos of Creator/RobinWilliams as a mime and Creator/AdamSandler as another clown.

Shakes is on the verge of getting fired, as his drunken shenanigans often end up ruining the kids' birthday parties he performs at. On top of that, his alcoholism is messing up his relationship with his girlfriend Judy, a [[FanServiceWithASmile waitress in the clown bar Shakes frequents]] and aspiring professional bowler. When he passes out at a bar for clowns that him and his two friends frequent, he winds up being framed for the murder of his boss. Said friends and Judy help him evade the law and two witnesses to the actual murder (who chase after him) as Shakes, while posing as a mime, finds out who's really responsible (at first he thinks he actually did it and was just too drunk to remember) and helps bring him to justice. Meanwhile, Shakes' friends realize Shakes has an alcohol problem, and [[NailedToTheWagon help/force him to quit]].

* EveryoneHatesMimes: Played for laughs and drama. Shakes and his friends, as party clowns, hate mimes for some unknown reason, and if they see them will assault them. Shakes, at least, [[AnAesop gets better]].
