RICHMOND, Va. — Monty Python founding members John Cleese and Eric Idle are coming to Richmond. The comedians Together Again at Last….For the Very First Time show is scheduled to make a stop at Carpenter Theatre Sunday, October 25, 2015. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Richmond is part of the show’s 13-city tour.
“As founding members of Monty Python, Cleese and Idle are unarguably among the godfathers of modern comedy, helping to pioneer an irreverent, absurdist sensibility that is emulated by comics around the world to this very day,” show promoters touted. “As individuals, they have written, performed and produced some of the most beloved and critically-acclaimed shows of all-time like Spamalot, A Fish Called Wanda, Fawlty Towers and The Rutles.”
The Richmond show will “blend scripted and improvised bits with storytelling, musical numbers, exclusive footage, aquatic juggling and an extended audience Q&A to craft a unique comedic experience with every performance.”
