Rush Call Clown is a New York film examining the raw microcosm of one man’s life after a celebrity’s social media post portrays the man's professional image as scary and violent.
The film is inspired by an real life event that happened to the lead actor Olan Montgomery when a social media post of of him dressed as a clown was posted on social media by comedian Jim Gaffian who had asked to actor pose for a picture with him and then requested he pretend choke him. The famed comedian then posted the photo on social media with the tag line, "Have sweet dreams tonight." Comments to the post ranged from calling the actor's clown self "John Wayne Gacey" to suggesting he had a "clown car full of porn and smokes". First time director and writer Olan Montgomery inspired by the repercussions of this celebrities social media post wrote Rush Call Clown with one question in mind: "What if a celebrity did this to someone whose life and livelihood depended being a clown?"
