I certainly did recognize it.  I frequently allude to it in posts where it merits.  Having read it years ago.

Well, he isn't someone to shake a speare at.  You know something I think is funny?  He often wrote on deadlines.  He wouldn't have thought himself any great talent.

Your joke was current ... circa 1600 so I have read.  Even if more an impresario than an actor of playwright ... still good stuff.
