See the Python Behind Spamalot

Eric Idle will be a guest on the Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson Monday night (July 6) on CBS. A former member of Monty Python, Idle wrote the book and composed the music and lyrics with John De Prez for the Tony Award-winning Broadway show Monty Python's Spamalot. The show is lovingly ripped off from the comedy troupe’s classic film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. The hilarious musical comedy will open the Center’s 2009-2010 Broadways Series October 6 – 18.

Aside from his work with Monty Python in films and on TV, Idle has written numerous plays, novels and songs. He has also sung opera, acted in movies, appeared on television and even crossed America performing comedy. There’s no telling what Idle might do next so be sure to catch him on the Late, Late Show.
