|Rick Miller as MacHomer|
Rick Miller performs Macbeth by impersonating (imcartoonating?) the characters from The Simpsons. Like his predecessor Rich Little, Rick Miller has a gift for performing comic impressions; unlike his predecessor, Miller has transformed this mode of stand-up comedy into a rather more ambitious performance: a one-man stage adaptation of Shakespeare's Scottish play, as interpreted by almost the entire cast of The Simpsons. The result is MacHomer, which opened to fringe festival acclaim in 1996 and has been touring North America, Australia, and the UK ever since.
