“To beer or not to beer? Is that a question?”

These Fringe legends have toured the world, broken America, established themselves on London’s West End, won numerous awards, survived a zero star review in The Times (UK) and are now ready for their biggest challenge yet: Hamlet, Prince of Denmark in Australia!

Shitfaced-Shakespeare® is finally ready to tackle the greatest dramatic work ever commited to page in the English language, Hamlet. The story of a whiny lad who goes a bit loopy and does some stabbings. Sounds like pure comedy gold!

Featuring foul language, outrageous behaviour, terrible singing, rapidly expelled bodily fluids and dangerous swordplay Shakespeare has long been considered ‘cultural’. Think of it like Game of Thrones… with a coherent ending.

After sell out shows in 2018 and 2019 Shit-faced Shakespeare® are delighted to return for a 3rd year with an all new show for 2020. Buy tickets early to avoid soul-crushing disappointment.

Featuring a cast of professionally trained Shakespearean actors, each night one lucky victim is selected and carefully intoxicated for up to 4 hours prior to show time. The remaining sober cast are then tasked with negotiating the play around whatever furious nonsense emerges from their drunken co-star.

Warning: Shit-faced Shakespeare® is perfect for those wishing to add to their repertoire of colorful language and not for those who blush easily at the mere mention of the “F” word…

Shit-faced Shakespeare®: Hamlet is playing at exclusively at Max Watt’s during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival . Book early!
