Which historical figure would you like to see do stand-up comedy?

Asked by AmWiser (14927points) October 6th, 2010

Who would you love to see deliver the laughs on the stage?

A historical figure who is not considered a comedian.
They can be living or dead!

Like perhaps, Henry VIII. He’d be one of those “My wife nags me so much” kind of comedians.

Cleopatra. She enters the stage to Walk Like an Egyptian. She confesses how her ancestor Alexander was not so great, how son Caesarion was named after his method of delivery, Marc Antony was an asp, reincarnation isn’t all that it is cracked up to be, and how figs gave her gas.
