Robin Williams in Shakes the Clown

Shakes the Clown starred Bobcat Goldthwait, and billed itself as the “Citizen Kane of alcoholic clown movies.”  It’s not that great a film.  What I did like was the food chain of clowns.  Top of the food chain were the rodeo clowns.  Below them were the party clowns.  And at the bottom were the mimes.

Robin Williams appears as an angry mime instructor and as always, he is great.
