Dave Shakespeare is the story of two feckless morons who buy a time machine online and attempt to bring William Shakespeare to the present day. Things don't go as planned. Instead of the man who wrote Lear and Hamlet, our heroes get his brother, Dave: bitter, alcoholic, and with a lust for fame that far exceeds his talents, he's going to fit in just fine.
