BY SCOTT SIMON

Kaa-Zowie opens with Shelly Sullivan and a company of clowns—excuse me, actors who play clowns—on a local television snow in January of 1986. They know that changes in the industry may catch up with their show. And the arrival of a new General Manager at the station—and her daughter—catch up with Shelley’s past. Kaa-zowie is a story about the gift of laughter and the curse of alcoholism. But the laughs cannot drown out the struggle.
