Bonded through a love of comedy and a crime of passion, two clowns — Jangsaeng (Kam Woo Sung) and Gong Gil (Lee Joon Gi)—go on the run and take their act with them. But after their new routine catches the ire of the court and becomes grounds for treason, the comedic duo is summoned to humor the king—or die trying. Amidst increasing political unrest, the mad king takes a dangerous liking to the effeminate Gong Gil, forcing both clowns to walk a fatal tightrope between performance and reality.
