Shakespeare Tonight Co-writers Paul Wilson and Tim Ferguson ask the question: If Shakespeare were alive today, who would he be? Quentin Tarantino, Keith Richards, Russell Brand? Or just an eccentric outsider? In a television studio, Shakespeare is giving his first ever interview after Hamlet has opened to mixed reviews. He and his rival, Francis Bacon, battle for control as they attempt to secure their place in history. Shakespeare Tonight will be dedicated to John Pinder, the founder of the Melbourne Comedy Festival who died this year, and was the dramaturge for the production. Matt Okine: The Other Guy Matt Okine is hitting his stride professionally: a Triple J radio host, ABC TV host ( How Not to Behave with Gretel Killeen) and a successful stand-up comedian. In his selfdeprecating style, Okine pokes fun at his less-than-impressive dating history and the racism he experienced as a child.
