The Shakespeare example exaggerates; it's not 'practically every' comedy where boy actors dress as female characters dressed as men only in four (Twelfth Night, Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Merchant of Venice, and As You Like It) is there crossdressing, and multiple cross-dressed women only in the last two.

Wouldn't "Victor/Victoria" count as an example of this? A woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman...

This xkcd comic (human pretending to be an animal pretending to be human) makes me wonder if there's any basis for a recursive supertrope, but nothing else comes to mind.
