On the anniversary of the burning of the Globe Theatre, Jim Jefferies, Nikki Glaser and Brett Gelman lay waste to Shakespeare's plays. (1:33)

It's now time for tonight'sHashtag Wars.

(cheers and applause)

On this day in British history,the Globe Theatre in London

burned to the ground in 1613.

This is not to be confused,this week in British history,

where they voted to burnthe actual Globe to the ground.

That's something that happened.

The Globe was the famed theatre

where Shakespeare put onmany of his plays

and wrote many othersthat never saw the light of day,

like his much-anticipatedsequel,

2 Romeo, 2 Juliet, which is great.

So in honor of the greatWilliam Shakespeare's

beloved Globe burning down,

tonight's hashtag is "RuinShakespeare." Ruin Shakespeare.

Examples might be Polio and Juliet, or...

GELMAN:Oh, that was a good one.

Or Oh-Thell-No."

or MacBeth is Back: For a Limited Time. Uh...
