Boring, Unfunny Mess
2 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show is boring and not funny. The idea behind it of taking Shakespeare's most famous plays and then modernizing them as half hour TV episodes is a good one but the execution was poor. The jokes are bad, the acting is usually terrible and the writing was even worse. I guess when you try to shrink down a Shakespeare play to half an hour, modernize it (in the case of this show modernizing it means to make it dirty and add in swear words) and try to cram in as many obvious jokes as you can in a desperate attempt to make it funny, it loses everything that made the story good in the first place. I have to write two more lines so I will just say this.... Shakespeare Comedy Show is one of the least funny shows I have ever seen.
