The British are coming, the British are coming ... to Florida, that is.
British comedians John Cleese and Eric Idle will make a stop in Orlando this fall as part of their touring show, John Cleese & Eric Idle: Together Again at Last … For the Very First Time.
In the new show, 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" (according to the press release).
The duo's history goes back to the 1960s, when they joined the British comedy group Monty Python
Cleese went on to star in the 1970s hit Monty Python and the Holy Grail
and has since had roles in 3rd Rock from the Sun
and Will & Grace
In 1975, Grammy- and Tony award-winner Idle created the Broadway hit Spamalot
, a musical based off Monty Python and the Holy Grail
