Comment:        RE: SHK 14.0533 Late Elizabethan/Jacobean Query

The Malcontent! Do The Malcontent by Marston.

The protagonist is an insult comedian. There's a delicious speech where
he comforts the usurper of his throne (what do non-kings sit on?) by
assuring him that all the truly great men have been cuckolds.

It's my favorite.
