[S4E13] Tears of a Clown
Cam debuts his clown character Fizbo in an effort to add to the life of the party. Mitchell has a hard time grasping Cam's fondness for "clown culture" and isn't shy about letting his partner know it's an embarrassment. However, when Cam steps up to a man bullying Mitchell at the gas station, Mitchell realizes that Cam's clown exterior is just one other side of the man he loves. Hilariously, Phil has a deep-seated fear of clowns, and stumbles his way through the party anxious at the site of Fizbo. He casually remarks that he has no idea where the fear came from, even though his mother always told him it's because he found a dead clown in the woods as a young boy.
There are many lovable traits to Cam's character but one of the fans' favorites is Fizbo (to who fans were first introduced in season 1). In 'Fizbo,' the clown ended up having a memorable moment for viewers as he allowed fans to see another part of Cam's character. Not only was he fun and charming, but Cam also looked so confident and comfortable in his alter-ego too.
