I’m sure you remember the “Spankbotty Shakespeare” act that was featured on Britain’s Got More Talent earlier this year. That performance was toned down for a family friendly television audience, but now for the first time online you can watch a full version of the act as performed in late night comedy clubs. It’s a seven minute long extravaganza with a pair of comely maidens being taught an unforgettable lesson in the rhythmic power of the iambic pentameter. (With a bit of luck this one might even keep Father Jon happy!)
Many thanks to the great man himself, Mr Jonathan Hartman, for tipping me off about the video. If there’s any justice, the entertainment industry will reward his comedic talents with plenty more TV appearances in the future.
