Kings of Comedy Marcus Brigstocke and Jon Culshaw will share the starring role of King Arthur*, alongside the irrepressible Bonnie Langford as the Lady of the Lake and TV legend Todd Carty as Patsy.
'Former Python Eric Idle has come up with a simpler, shorter and zingier version, which in Christopher Luscombe's fresh-as-paint production, recalls Monty Python's roots in undergraduate review. The lady sitting next to me spent most of the show physically helpless with laughter ... In these dark days it will help you look on the bright side of life.'
King Arthur and his Knights of the (very) Round Table have travelled up and down the length and breadth of the land in their quest for the Holy Grail and now ride triumphantly into London's West End for a strictly limited 7 week summer season from 24 July 2012 A.D!
The show features the hilarious songs He is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation's Favourite Comedy Song Always Look on the Bright Side of Life and features Eric Idle himself as God (see small print)*.
'I felt I might actually die of laughter'
'Glorious irresistible silliness'
The Sunday Times
'So if you are chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle and book yourself a ticket to Spamalot. It will help you look on the bright side of life.'
*Marcus Brigstocke and Jon Culshaw will share the role of King Arthur.
