Two of Britain’s most iconic comedians are teaming up for three nights in Sydney that you’ll never forget, with John Cleese and Eric Idle teaming up for: John Cleese and Eric Idle: Together at last… for the very first time.

As founding members of comedy troupe Monty Python, you should expect the unexpected, but most importantly a whole lot of laughs. They have been touring the United States and now they’re bringing their show down under.

On speaking about the announcement, Cleese had a few things to say about the night will entail.

“No one show will be the same and all of them will annoy the Politically Correct,” said Cleese.

To expand on that quote, there will be scripted story telling, improvisation, musical numbers, exclusive footage and an audience Q&A for those Cleese and Idle diehards to ask their burning questions.

Idle is excited to tour our nation since he has a special connection with Australia.

“Having enjoyed the World Tour of Florida, we were looking for somewhere else large aquatic reptiles of the sub family Crocodylinae also thrived,” he said. “The Nile was booked, so we are coming to Australia.  Having once married a sheila and as the father of a half-Australian son, I look forward to touring one of my all-time favourite places.”

Get your tickets as soon as you can because this is bound to sell out. (AMal)
