An enchanting series of short films comprising bastardized versions of the esteemed Bard’s plays, made suitable (in plain English) for the enjoyable digestion of contemporary audiences, is thusly titled:The Shakespeare Comedy Show, a three episode, half hour series, based on the supposition that all of Shakespeare’s plays provide juicy fodder for comedic satire.

Using the original plays as jumping off points for the characters, our nine short films deftly encapsulate the absurdities of the human condition. The familiarity of audiences around the world with Shakespeare’s works, and the universal themes they embody, will make the programs broadly accessible and wildly popular. By contemporizing Shakespeare to modern society, it’s amazing to see how little our perceptions of love, loyalty and betrayal have changed over the past five hundred years.
