Philomena Cunk on Shakespeare

You may know Charlie Brooker only through his amazing Black Mirror programs, but savvy Brookerfen are avid viewers of his Screenwipe/Newswipe shows -- acerbic, potty-mouthed media criticism shows that feature talents of Barry Shitpeas and Philomena Cunk, a thick-skulled, oblivious, amazing deadpan comedic persona of Diane Morgan.

Cunk occasionally gets her own full-length 30-minute solo specials, like this one: Cunk on Shakespeare: 30 glorious, gut-busting minutes of anti-pompous parody of everything you've ever seen about old Bill.
