Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Vulgar

Will Carlson (Brian O'Halloran, “Clerks”) is “Flappy”, a down-on-his-luck children's party clown. Harshly chastised by his miserable, stuck-in-a-nursing-home mother (Debbie Karr) for being such a loser, Will decides to change his depressing station in life. While reading the sexually perverse personal ads in a diner one day, a light bulb suddenly forms over Will's head: he will be a lingerie-clad clown at bachelor parties as a joke before the “real” entertainment arrives.   Will runs the idea by his best friend Syd Gilbert (Bryan Johnson, “Mallrats“) and Syd comments that the plan sounds a bit vulgar … and so Vulgar the Clown is born.

Will's first bachelor party gig at a sleazy motel goes horribly wrong when he is brutally beaten and raped by a sadistic middle-age drunk, Ed Fanelli (Jerry Lewkowitz), and Ed's two dim-witted sons, Frankie (Ethan Suplee, “My Name is Earl“) and Gino (Matt Maher). Will confides to Syd about his torturous night and Syd advises going to the police, which Will is vehemently against. Will decides that the best form of therapy is simply to get back to work as Flappy the Clown.

On his way to a children's birthday party one afternoon, Will notices police activity and distractedly crashes his already ramshackle car. When the police explain that they‘re dealing with a hostage standoff, Will boldly intervenes and saves a little girl from her deranged father. Will quickly becomes a local hero and celebrity, appearing on talk shows describing his ordeal. Hotshot producer Martan Ingram (Kevin Smith, “Clerks II”) soon offers Will his own television show, “Flappy's Funhouse”. One year later, the show is an instant hit and soon the money is rolling in, allowing Will to buy a luxurious new car and a beautiful home. Will is on the top of the world until an unexpected phone call (and an unwelcome face from the past), threatens to destroy things.
