The Comedy of Errors - William Shakespeare - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the play Comedy of Errors:

Mistaken identity, done twins, times two.

My favorite William Shakespeare quote from the play:

"Until I know this sure uncertainty, I'll entertain the offered fallacy."

Questions to ponder while reading Comedy of Errors:

Is there anything more fun than puns?

Could slapstick be more fun than puns?

My thoughts about Comedy of Errors:

It is utterly ridiculous and I love it.

One must have humor to survive.

One of the easiest of Shakespeare's plays to read (in my opinion).

*Note - My favorite quote from the play is actually "If she lives till doomsday, she'll burn a week longer than the whole world" but everyone insists it too impolite to say so.
