New York, June 15, 2016 – Still together again, Britain’s living legends of comedy, John Cleese and Eric Idle, announce a 2nd round of North America dates; this time taking on the Western part of the US along with a couple of cities North of the border! Following a successful run last fall in the Eastern US as well as a sold-out run in Australia and New Zealand this past February, their must-see tour, John Cleese & Eric Idle: Together Again At Last…For The Very First Time will once again embark on some of the warmest (and driest) territories the US has to offer. The tour will take place from October 16 to November 26 and will see the British icons perform unforgettable sit-down comedy at premier venues in Victoria, Vancouver, Seattle, Spokane, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, San Jose, Thousand Oaks, Santa Barbara, Escondido, San Diego, Las Vegas, Mesa, Tucson, Albuquerque, El Paso with additional markets to be announced soon. For full tour dates and links to tickets visit cleeseandidle.com.

 

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 and aquatic juggling to create a unique comedic experience with every performance. No two shows will be quite the same, thus ensuring that every audience feels like they’re 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 unarguably 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.

About John Cleese
On the small screen, John Cleese is known for his work on programs such as Cheers, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Will & Grace, and the Emmy®-nominated TLC documentary The Human Face with John Cleese. His film credits include Silverado, The Out-of-Towners, Rat Race and Kenneth Branagh’s Frankenstein. He also co-authored two best-selling books on psychology – Families and How to Survive Them and Life and How to Survive It – and served briefly as Minister of Defense in the John Major Cabinet. He recently completed his autobiography So, Anyway… which was described by the Daily Mail as “self-obsessed.” In his twilight years, John passes his time writing film scripts, giving speeches to business audiences, doing seminars on creativity, teaching at Cornell, paying alimony, and doting on three huge cats and a fish.

About Eric Idle
Long unmemorable as an actor, Eric Idle has trotted out an interminable number of glib performances in funny wigs and a bad moustache in numerous films and television appearances. But it is as a writer that he will be best forgotten, with credits that include Hello Sailor, Pass the Butler, The Greedy Bastard Diary, The Road to Mars, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, The Rutland Dirty Weekend Book, The Rutles, Spamalot, Not The Messiah and What About Dick? He also sings, tours, acts in bad movies, writes annoying songs, and generally never shuts up. Despite having Grammy®, Tony®, Writer’s Desk, Lifetime Achievement, and numerous other awards thrust at him, Eric refuses to go away quietly. It’s not right. He is currently sullying the internet at ericidle.com (and @EricIdle onTwitter).
