Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis) has always dreamed of being a classically trained clown. After flunking out of French clown college, he returns home to Bakersfield, CA, moves in with his mother Christine (Louie Anderson), bickers with his twin brother Dale (also played by Zach Galifianakis), and continues to pursue his dream with the help of his friend Martha (Martha Kelly). In season 4, big changes are underway for the Baskets family. After 49 years, Chip decides it’s finally time to move out of his mom’s place. But even with the help of a life coach, he learns that leaving the nest is hard, to say the least. The series is directed by Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia) and co-created by Krisel and Galifianakis for FX Productions. TV-MA | 30 min

He created the interactive ambisonic music for Google’s Earth VR app, and is active in animation, scoring the How to Train Your Dragon-inspired series Dragons: Rescue Riders (Netflix) for DreamWorks and the antics of iconic characters Bugs Bunny & Daffy Duck for Looney Tunes Cartoons (HBO Max) from Warner Bros. Animation.
