Britain’s living legends of comedy, and the founders of Monty Python, John Cleese and Eric Idle, announce a New Zealand tour for their must-see new show, John Cleese & Eric Idle: Together Again At Last…For The Very First Time. The 2016 tour will see the British icons perform unforgettable shows in March 2016.
“Eric and I had huge fun touring the States in October and now we can bring our show to the friendliest people in the world” John Cleese said on the announcement of the Australasian tour. “No one show will be the same and all of them will annoy the Politically Correct.”
In Together Again At Last…For The Very First Time, Cleese and Idle 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. No two shows will be quite the same, thus ensuring that every audience feels like they are seeing Together Again At Last… For The Very First Time, for the very first time. And now you know why the show is called that, don’t you?
As founding members of Monty Python, Cleese and Idle are unarguable among the godfathers of modern comedy, helping to pioneer an irreverent, absurdist sensibility that is emulated by comics around the world. 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.
