The name says it all, doesn't it? Shit-Faced Shakespeare features a cast of actors performing Shakespeare... only one of them is always absolutely plastered. A sell-out smash for years in the US and UK, the show only hit up Australia for the very first time last year — and now it's heading to Brisbane. The occasion: this year's Brisbane Comedy Festival.

And what better play to perform for their Brisbane bow than The Bard's greatest comedy: Much Ado About Nothing. Maybe you've seen the Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Denzel Washington and Keanu Reeves movie version from the 90s. Maybe you caught the Joss Whedon-directed black-and-white film adaptation a few years back. Either way, you haven't seen the classic tale like this.

Shit-Faced Shakespeare hits up Brisbane Powerhouse for two show — on Tuesday, March 19 and Sunday, March 24.
