Chip’s France Clown School Location:

In season 1 of Baskets, the setting for Chip’s clown school was actually The Celebrity Center in Hollywood, California, located at 5930 Franklin Ave, Hollywood, CA 90028.


This iconic building, owned by the Church of Scientology, is well-known for its striking architecture and has been used as a location for several movies and TV shows over the years. It’s interesting to see how different locations can be transformed to suit the needs of a particular scene or storyline.

Chip Works As A Classily Trained Clown:

In the season of the FX series Baskets, viewers are treated to the comedic and poignant sight of Chip working as a clown. Despite his dreams of becoming a professional clown in France, Chip finds himself in his hometown of Bakersfield, California, donning a clown suit and entertaining children at a local rodeo.


One of the most memorable scenes of the season takes place at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena, which is located in Whittier, California, at 11003 Sports Arena Drive. This venue serves as the backdrop for the rodeo scenes, where Chip struggles to find his footing as a clown while dealing with personal and professional setbacks.

As the season progresses, viewers are taken on a journey through Chip’s ups and downs as he tries to reconcile his dreams with his current reality. Despite the challenges he faces, Chip’s resilience and determination are inspiring, and his journey is a reminder that sometimes the most fulfilling path is not the easiest one.

Overall, the season of Baskets is a testament to the power of humor and the human spirit. It reminds us that even in the most difficult of circumstances, there is always a way to find joy and meaning in life. MAP IT!!

Chip Crash’s On His Scooter:

It’s always fascinating to discover the behind-the-scenes details of our favorite TV shows. In the case of Baskets, we now have some new information about a memorable scene from season 1 thanks to “Randy’s” tip.

The scene in question involves Chip crashing his scooter, and it was filmed at Lake Balboa, which is located in Van Nuys, California. The lake is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, with plenty of recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and picnicking.

In the scene, Chip is seen zooming around on his scooter and unfortunately leads to a nasty spill, and he ends up in falling/crashing on the scooter. This is where he meets Martha for the first time.

For fans of the show, knowing the exact location of where the scene was filmed adds an extra layer of appreciation. Lake Balboa is a picturesque location, with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and plenty of greenery. It’s easy to see why the show’s creators chose this spot for the scene.
