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.
