COMEDY: Spamalot promises an evening of great laughs

DESCRIBED as funnier than the black death, ‘Spamalot’ is headed for the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre from January 23 to 27.

Lovingly ripped off from the hugely successful 1975 film ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’, this spammier than ever production is a riotous comedy full of misfit knights, killer rabbits, dancing nuns and ferocious Frenchmen.

Join King Arthur as he travels with his hapless Knights of the Round Table on a divine mission to locate the illusive Holy Grail – with uproarious consequences.

Spamalot was the winner of the 2005 Tony Award for Best New Musical, while it enjoyed a victorious West End run.

This hilarious show is written by Python legend Eric Idle, who has been entertaining the British public for over 50 years.

The funnyman also wrote the score alongside John DuPrez, famous for his work on Monty Python’s ‘The Meaning of Life’ among a host of other big-name scores.

The new tour is produced by the award winning Selladoor Productions and Mercury Theatre Colchester.

Spamalot is directed by Daniel Buckroyd and designed by Sara Perks. Lighting is designed by David W Kidd and sound by Chris Bogg.

With comic tunes including ‘Brave Sir Robin’, ‘We’re Knights of the Round Table’ and perennial favourite ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’, Spamalot audiences are sure to be dancing in the aisles.

Don’t be a knight who says ‘No’ ….Grab your coconuts and gallop down to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre to book your tickets early as this is one show that is sure to sell out fast!
