Yellow stockings? Ass ears? Masks? Insults? Clown paint? Cakes and Ale? What is it about Shakespeare’s comedies that makes them so popular even 400 years after they were written? Following the success of the one man show: 'Why Will?' in 2021, by popular demand, Bowler Crab's Artistic Director returns to the format, this time exploring Shakespeare's comedies ... all of them! 'Shakespeare & Comedy' features twenty speeches and a myriad of subscriber questions to form a show which asks the central question: 'Why is Shakespeare famous for his comedies?' Stephen John takes a stomp through Shakespeare’s comedies, sharing his experience directing and performing Shakespeare professionally for almost ten years. Bicker with Benedick, dream with Bottom and mock with Malvolio as Stephen explores Shakespeare’s most famous comic scenes and the rarest alike! A love of laughter and literature encase this charismatic and personal performance as Stephen fights, feasts, frights, fakes and falls about laughing in every effort to share his passion for Shakespeare.
