Happy birthday @johncleese, celebrating in Seattle on tour with @ericidle #cleeseandidle
People often ask me “Would John Cleese recap all six seasons of The Walking Dead? Please?”
Because you asked so politely:
Just a few short hours from now, @johncleese and @ericidle will be taking the stage in Victoria, B.C. for the first of nearly three dozen North American shows down the west coast and across the Southwest and South. Here’s the info if you’re interested. Me? I’m going to take a nap. The thought of that schedule has me exhausted. #montypython #johncleese #ericidle #johnanderic
Looks like it’s okay to announce this now.
If you’re disappointed because your part of America didn’t have a chance to see Eric and John last year and this year. you’re still out of luck. But if you’ve always wanted to see Monty Python and the Holy Grail presented by John, with a full discussion of the film and audience Q&A, you’re in luck. During the month of January, there will be lots and lots of opportunities. Only three have been announced so far, but there will be more. Honest.
20 January – The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, Maine. You can access the PRE-SALE tickets using the password: GRAIL here. Pre-sale ends Monday 10 October at 10pm.
48 years ago today, Oct 5, 1969, I don’t think anyone expected that the world would still be talking about a show that aired that night on BBC2. Happy birthday #montypython!
Sunday night saw Terry Jones honored by BAFTA for Lifetime Achievement, which you can read about here. If you viewed it while it was live streamed or simply saw clips of it since then, I think you’ll agree it was a touching night, made more so by Terry’s announcement of his dementia diagnosis. Michael Palin gave a great speech, as did Terry’s son Bill. Even John Cleese was touched–and John isn’t a man consumed by sentiment! While Terry may begin to fade from the public spotlight, his contributions will only become more obvious as time goes on. But as I’m sure he’d want me to remind you–he’s not dead yet!
