New Episode: Today I Am a Clown

Simpsons News — Posted 07 Dec, 2003 by Scott

Krusty the Clown never had a bar mitzvah. It’s a startling confession "Simpsons" fans will hear this Sunday when the Springfield celebrity discovers he doesn’t have a star on the town’s Jewish Walk of Fame.

In the episode, "Today, I Am a Clown," written by Joel H. Cohen, the sardonic Krusty turns to his Orthodox father, Rabbi Hyman Krustofsky (guest voice Jackie Mason), and Mr. T for help.

Rabbi Krustofsky returns to help his son study for his big day — which he originally opposed for the young Hershel, fearing that he might make a mockery out of it. When Krusty realizes that his show’s shooting schedule has him working on Shabbat, he brings in Homer Simpson as a guest host. Read.

Unfortunately, Homer wins over the audience with buddies Lenny, Moe and Carl and talk of everyday subjects like doughnuts. Krusty, in turn, gets canned.

In a bid to reclaim his audience, Krusty turns his bar mitzvah into a reality TV show, slating the event for Isotope Stadium and inviting Mr. T to read from the Torah.

What else might we expect from a "Simpsons" bar mitzvah? In keeping with tradition, maybe a little "D’oh."
