19: SHAKESPEARE with James Urbaniak

When I say the word "Shakespeare," what emotion washes over you? For us, it's a strong, dull boredom sort of wash. Not a great wash. Our whole lives Shakespeare is forced down our throats as if it's the be-all-end-all in prose and poetry and plays but like, NO. Get away. It's boring! Right? Does anyone like Shakespeare?!? Apparently. Entere James Urbaniak. I put the extra 'e' on 'enter' to make it seem more Shakespearian, k?

James Urbaniak is a brilliant actor who we have had the pleasure of working with and knowing. I first saw him in American Splendor as Robert Crumb and I was like "WHO IS THIS MAN?" He's just great and you probably know him from his voiceover work on Adult Swim's "The Venture Bros." Next to maybe Patrick Stewart or something, James Urbaniak is the best possible guest we could have had on the show for this subject!
