Baskets follows Zach Galifi nakis’ character of Chip Baskets, whose dream it is to become a French clown. But he doesn’t speak French. And his French wife is using him for a visa. And the best he can do is become a rodeo clown, which pays a pittance. It may sound more sad than funny, but that’s the beauty of Galifi nakis’s performance and Louis C.K.’s writing—they pull it off swimmingly. Baskets never quite becomes the perfect clown—but he clowns in real life, by accident, better than any clown could.
