Bums on seats
Check out this marvelous five-minute live sketch on YouTube. Features Hugh Laurie as "Bill" Shakespeare and Rowan Atkinson as the dour theatre manager who wants to cut Hamlet down from its five-hour running time. Absolutely hilarious: "They love... the crazy chick in the see-through dress." Which is the dodgy soliloquy Atkinson wants to cut? No prizes for guessing that one.
