Aye from every angle he was the very image of England’s greatest playwright…

Last week this blog got the most traffic since I started it. This was, ostensibly, because I posted more often than I normally do. Maybe it also has something to do with the fact that the posts were short, had something of a point, and weren’t about events that nobody had been to.

Don’t get used to it.

Anyway, to celebrate, here is a YouTube video of my favourite comedy sketch of all time. When I saw this first, it hurt my stomach. I don’t know why, it just did. It’s from Graham Linehan and Arthur Mathews’ surrealist sketch show Big Train, and it’s about Portaccio, the greatest ever Shakespeare impersonator.
