It’s impossible to see the original Monty Python cast production anymore short of downloading The Life of Brian and drinking 8 beers with your friends.
It’s impossible to see the original Monty Python cast production anymore short of downloading The Life of Brian and drinking 8 beers with your friends. But for those of us who weren’t alive for their old tours, you’ve got a chance to see part of the Britain’s most famous comedy troupe together again at last… for the very first time.
Here’s a bit more about the event via the tour’s website:
As founding members of Monty Python, Cleese and Idle are unarguably among the godfathers of modern comedy, helping to pioneer an irreverent, absurdist sensibility that is emulated by comics around the world to this very day. As individuals, they have written, performed and produced some of the most beloved and critically-acclaimed shows of all-time like Spamalot, A Fish Called Wanda, Fawlty Towers and The Rutles.
In Together Again At Last… For The Very First Time, Cleese and Idle will blend scripted and improvised bits with storytelling, musical numbers, exclusive footage, aquatic juggling and an extended audience Q&A to craft a unique comedic experience with every performance. No two shows will be quite the same, thus ensuring that every audience feels like they’re seeing Together Again At Last… For The Very First Time, for the very first time. And now you know why the show is called that, don’t you?
*Yes, most of the shows are in Florida. Yes, this is a deliberate ploy by John & Eric to score a free vacation. Yes, they’re perfectly okay with you knowing that. England is very dreary come October.
And while most of the early announced shows were infact being held in Sunny Florida, the tour has since been extended to include a number of broader US dates, including here in Richmond on Oct. 25th at the Carpenter Theatre.
