Shakespeare Sunday… Once more

How many comedians have a Shakespeare-related joke in their set? Hopefully lots, but I have only ever heard of one.

His name is Eddie Izzard. (The joke involves what would happen if Henry V had an untrustworthy voice. Lets just say it doesn’t end well…)

I couldn’t find the bit online just yet (but the show with it in – Force Majeure – will be out on DVD shortly) so I’m linking instead to a very groovy interview between Eddie and Canada’s boyfriend George Stroumboulopoulos. More on Shakespeare and on Eddie (separately) later… But for now, just enjoy.
