“There is much to be said in favor of modern journalism. By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community. By carefully chronicling the current events of contemporary life, it shows us of what very little importance such events really are. By invariably discussing the unnecessary, it makes us understand what things are requisite for culture, and what are not.” –Oscar Wilde
Journalism, MTV ain’t. But the above quotation actually sounds like a more accurate depiction of modern television than modern journalism. In an attempt to prove Wilde’s hypothesis, veteran stage actors Santino Fontana and David Furr take a break from Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest to read some transcripts from MTV’s hit show Jersey Shore. You’ll never hear a stage actor say the words “Dick for Skittles” so well again. Make sure to stay tuned for the outtakes in Part V.
That is absolutely top drawer. Bra-vo, Furr and Fontana!
