Are You Ready For Season 2 of Baskets?

You know why I’m excited about January 19th? Baskets with Zach Galifianakis is coming back for a second season! This is definitely one of the funniest, weirdest, most awkward and hilarious, comedies on TV right now. Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis) is a sad clown that never fails to bring a smile to my face and entertainment to my evening. I love this show and can’t wait to see what happens next. It’s cheesy and weird comedy at its best. If you haven’t seen it you should really give it a shot. Especially if you are a Galifianakis fan.


Season 1 was hilarious. I don’t want to give too much away in case you haven’t seen it but the gist of the story is Chip Baskets just wants to be a clown. It’s a dream of his. Unfortunately, he was flunking French clown school and couldn’t afford to keep on, so he moved back to the states and got a job as a rodeo clown. His interview is hilarious and it cracks me up to see him trying to perform like a French clown while dodging bulls.

His family is extremely dysfunctional. His mother was so embarrassed by him she adopted twins just to have something to brag about. His brother is a douche bag that owns a career school and is always breaking his balls. His family dynamic is entertaining to say the least. I love it.

This holiday season, I received a holiday basket filled with all sorts of funny items from the show. It came with a bottle of Schweppes, cheeseballs, an ornament, a Baskets Career College planner, and my very own clip on man bun (which I gave to my husband). When it arrived in the mail I laughed so hard my face hurt. The contents were a perfect gift as they were completely in line with the show. My husband loved the man bun and can’t even refer to Schweppes anymore without screaming. It’s hilarious.


If you have a dark sense of humor like me and my household, you will love Baskets. After you catch up on season one, be sure to tune in to FX Networks on January 19th for season two. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
