Subject:        Columbo and Shakespeare?

Someone recently mentioned to me that there had been an article source
alone in which it was claimed that the Columbo character in the
eponymous series was based on a Shakespearean character. I can't think
of who that would be. There are certainly no lack of wise clowns in the
plays, but I can't think of any who solved a mystery.

Anyone out there know what this is all about -- if anything.  Thanks in
advance. HR Greenberg MD
