We Eat Ham and Jam and

Spam a lot!  I went to see it a few days ago.  I enjoyed it, but if you're a huge Monty Python fan, you won't be surprised.  I laughed three or four times, because I knew a lot of the routines and songs well enough that I could have been on stage doing them.  I bet many of you could too!

The original work was derivative, but enjoyable.  Eric Idle wrote the book and lyrics, and had a hand writing the music.

It followed the basic plot of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" until near the end when it just went a bit nuts.

Frankly, my hopes were raised by reading the playbill (honest).  Before getting into the genuine playbill, they had three pages of a rather different play.  I've copied the sheets below, but you need to click on them to enlarge them and really enjoy it.

Now I think I have to sit down and watch Fawlty Towers.

  1. I am also a big Python fan. Love the dead parrot skit and the Lumberjack song, just to name a few.


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
