A Bat By Any Other Man is written by Ian Conn with the majority of the writing in Shakespearean English. Onscreen captions are provided to paraphrase the lines. In the video, Edward complains to Henry about the recent Hamlet remake.
Description: "They're remaking Hamlet. It's gonna be gritty."

The skit begins in 1619 with Henry almost having poop dumped on his head. Edward runs up to Henry, holding a piece of paper that advertises a Hamlet remake. Edward is unhappy with this news, believing they haven't waited long enough since the death of the main actor and Shakespeare. However, that isn't the only reason he thinks the remake is outrageous; he doesn't like that they're doing it different. He then criticizes their lack of originality.
In 2015 Kyle and Ian are sitting around and Kyle nonchalantly comments on how the local theater is going to perform Hamlet. He then begins to freak out over the news that Ben Affleck is going to be playing Batman, believing it'll ruin the series forever.
The sketch ends.
- This video pokes fun at people who overreact to remakes and changes in popular culture.
