When Dr Keegle informs him he actually has the dreaded Clown Syndrome and only a week to live, his wife must keep him away from any form of comedy. Michael agrees to attend a support group. Tragically, the DNA test was mixed up, and rather than Courophobia, Michael has actually got the Clown Gene - he's a clown, and cannot help himself delivering an improvised stand up routine to the members of the Clown Syndrome support group. Exposed to comedy, they die in droves and Michael is carted off to prison, charged with murder. At the last moment his sentence is commuted to Community Service and his family must adjust to the new Michael, from his red nose to his floppy shoes.
