Cleese and Idle (Monty Python) at the Kiva Auditorium Friday, November 25th 7:30 p.m.

And now for something completely different.
Forget rattlesnakes. On Black Friday, while the Duke City is out bargain hunting, or sleeping off food comas, the stage at Albuquerque’s Kiva Auditorium will be taken over by a pair of Pythons.
John Cleese and Eric Idle, two of the founding members of the seminal British comedy group Monty Python, and arguably two of the most influential comedic minds ever, will be here Friday Nov. 25th as they bring their two man “sit down comedy” show Together Again at Last…For the Very First Time to us on their latest stop in their west coast American tour.
Between them, along with the rest of the Monty Python group (the late Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin) Cleese and Idle have been responsible for more than 40 years of beloved comedy; including most notably Fawlty Towers, A Fish Called Wanda, and the Tony-Award winning Broadway musical Spamalot, adapted from the classic film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
In typical irreverent fashion, promotional materials for Together Again bill the show as an evening of “scripted and improvised bits with storytelling, musical numbers, exclusive footage and aquatic juggling.”
