In Search of Robin Hood (Sunday Funny)

A reader sent me a link to this, a new comedy documentary (docucomedy?) that follows three young Britons seeking the truth behind the Robin Hood legend, mostly by wandering around present day Nottingham.

This isn’t hardcore comedy*, nor is it hardcore medievalism, but I certainly approve of it. As you may have noticed, I’m all for people being sort of snarky and vaguely disrespectful while being in the presence of something one could reasonably call “medieval history”.

    Cheers for posting my video!! Glad you enjoyed it. Agree, it not so much about medieval history, as it's application (and often mis-application) in popular culture. It was really an accompanying bit of multi-media to a full length comedy show I did in a few festivals.

    Anyhoo, cheers!
