Bob Goldthwait

The actor, writer, director named "Bobcat."

Shakes the Clown (1992) -- Better and funnier than you might think.  The jokes range from premises like there being an entire town full of (essentially) clowns and mimes to funny word jokes like "If you screw up again, I'm gonna fire you so fast that you're going to be immediately unemployed."  The movie is raunchy and sleazy, and the look of the film suggests as much (it looks more like a 1982 than a 1992 film in quality) and the humor is certainly black, though never extremely dark.  It's worth seeing, and there are plenty of other famous people in here to look for other than Bobcat.
