Not only is Xmas a time for holidays and relaxing moments, but also for rediscovering some classics  -and have some fun...   John Branyan's stand-up revisits the old tale according to Shakespeare's rules -and as an English classic it does get funnier  :o)

Silly ? Amazing ? Definitely unusual. It might well prove to be another way of going green ;o)

This video is quite funny : it shows Rowan Atkinson (the famous "Mr Bean") and Hugh Laurie ("Doctor House") playing Blackadder and William Shakespeare.

Click on the manuscript below

to read the transcript of the sketch.

I hope you'll have fun !

By the way, William Shakespeare was baptised

on April... 26  (in 1564).
