About Old Clown Wanted

Three elderly men arrive with suitcases in a windowless room. Three out-of-fashion clowns who bump into one another at an audition. They are old, out of fashion and desperately hoping they'll be chosen as it's clearly their last chance. They have answered an advertisement stating "Small Part for an Old Clown". When no one arrives to interview them they start performing their old routines. Who is the best actor?
