And if you've never seen this movie.. go get a lot of alcohol and rent
it. (If you can find it)
Waking up in your own vomitThe free ride in
the dotmobile is over. Now that the Shakes
page isn't government supported, this site has
to fend for itself. Please help support it by buying a t-shirt
from our host: ihateclowns.com.
Sorry to go all commercial on you, but we gotta buy our booze somehow.
This page is not about hating clowns and neither is
Shakes. ihateclowns.com was just cool enough to step up and help
me find this place a new home. You might thank 'em for it.
Buy the Shakes the Clown DVD at Amazon.com.
You can also buy the VHS video of the movie here.
I found a
Juggling.org that has a behind the scenes picture of the movie and some
interesting facts about the stunt doubles.
I worked for Apple over the summer of '98. I noticed a California
Lottery show that has Jack Gallagher as the host. He played Officer
Crony. How bizarre.
Showing of Shakes the Clown
With a local drunk clown
Friday, March 20th, 1998 at the Grand Illiusion in
Seattle. Everyone was drinking or drunk in the theater. I'll post an
excerpt from the drunk clown's talk... some day.
Check this out!!
I talked to him. Yes,
Bobcat Goldthwait himself. I was able to get into Jampac's party at a
local club on October 9th, 1997. Here's a
pic. Bobcat was M.C.ing it. I was lucky enough to catch him
early on in the party, before the main show. He seemed amazed that there
was actually a page for Shakes. One of the coolest things he said
was that we would like to make a prequel. It would be about the elephant
accident that killed Shakes father. Apparently Binky would be the cause
of the accident. If anyone knows anyone important in Hollywood, let me
know. We need to get this flick made! And Bobcat, if you happen to
find this page, please drop me a
This site won the Bad Movie Site
of the Week Award. I don't know if I should be offended or proud.
Normally I don't put up the random awards that this site gets. Most of
them are lame ass promotions for other sites. Wait, all of them are
lame ass promotions for other sites. But this one is hilarious. I got
email saying this site was the "funniest". But it's on the FAMILY AND
KIDS page at Planet Click. Wow, I
didn't realize how wholesome and family oriented this page was.
Want a copy?
Skaryd, told me that Ken Cranes
Laserdisc carries Shakes on laserdisc in letterbox format for only
$27.98. I grabed myself a copy to use on this page... not that I own a
laserdisc player. Update: Apparently the last laser disc copy of
Shakes has been sold from Ken Cranes, but Davis Video & Sound
claims to be selling 'em for $19.95. Get 'em while the gettin's good.
