Baskets” hasn’t released much footage yet, but what we’ve seen has been dynamite. The trend keeps up in the above video, where — in a mere 15 seconds — Zach Galifianakis’ new FX comedy demonstrates just how many laughs it can get in a short amount of time.

While anything can look good in a trailer, we’ve got high hopes for the upcoming half-hour series co-created by Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel. Galifianakis stars as a man with one dream: to become a professional clown. He even travels to Paris to attend a prestigious clown academy, but he’s forced to take a job at the rodeo (see above) after failing to acquire his degree.

“Baskets” premieres in January 2016. Watch the new clip above.
