Funny Bones (1995)

[Oliver Platt, Jerry Lewis, Lee Evans, Leslie Caron, Oliver Reed]

Tommy Fawkes wants to be a successful comedian but his Las Vegas debut is a failure. He goes back to England, where his comedian father started, and where he spent the summers of his childhood. He starts to search for a partner, a comic relief, with whom he can be famous.

Many variety acts are seen briefly, including juggler Laci Endresz, Jr. The dazzling clown George Carl appears here as half of a fictional comedy team, the Parker Brothers, along with British stand-up comic Freddie Davies. Carl does some hat tricks, and Carl and Davies do some plate manipulation. In another scene there are three male unicyclists in tutus, riding in a cascade pattern.
