Shakespearean Christmas Carols, part 5

It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year! Spice up your holidays with these cheerful Shakespearean Christmas Carols!

Don’t forget to check out past years’ Shakespearean Christmas Carols: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4!

I’m taking next week off, but I’ll see you back here on New Year’s Day for another year of Shakespearean fun!

The Frozen Winter's Tale

Chalk this one up under the heading of "Things That Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time But Now I'm REALLY Not So Sure". Apart from the winter theme, I'm not sure what Disney smash-hit Frozen and Shakespeare weird-late-romance The Winter's Tale have in common. LET'S FIND OUT!!!

Good Tickle Brain at the Folger!

Just a reminder that I will be giving a FREE pre-show talk at the Folger Shakespeare Library on April 29 at 6:00pm

This is going to be a lot of fun, so if you're in the D.C. area, please do stop by and say hello! I will have merch available for purchase and will be hanging around after the talk to sign stuff and chat.

For details, as well as info on how to reserve your FREE ticket, please visit the Folger website

Exit, Pursued by Bear: Hamlet Edition

As you all know, I am really fond of the (in)famous "exit, pursued by a bear" shtick from The Winter's Tale. I thought it might be edifying to place characters from various other Shakespeare plays into Antigonus's unfortunate shoes and see how they react to being confronted by a wild and hungry bear. Let's start with Hamlet, shall we?

STOP SOLILOQUIZING AND MAKE UP YOUR MIND, HAMLET, THERE'S A BEAR TRYING TO EAT Y--- ooh, too late.

Into the (Shakespearean) Woods, part 2

Today I am unapologetically continuing my totally illogical and poorly-thought-out Shakespeare/Sondheim Into the Woods parody mash-up (begun in Monday's comic).

For those of you not familiar with Into the Woods, the first song is "Hello Little Girl" and the second is "Agony". Tune in again on Friday for one final Into the (Shakespearean) Woods comic, in which I will totally fail to neatly wrap up all the disparate plot lines.
