Philomena Cunk tackles the Bard for BBC

Our favourite idiot, Philomena Cunk, returns to our screens for a one off special on Shakespeare as part of the BBC’s Shakespeare’s season. The character, written and created by Joel Morris, Jason Hazeley and Charlie Brooker, and performed by Diane Morgan, has been a regular on BBC2 for some time now featuring in Charlie Brooker’s Weekly and End of Year Wipes – only this time, Philomena takes centre stage with her unique wisdom.

The show, produced by Charlie’s company House of Tomorrow, will show at 10pm on Wednesday 11th May.
