Monty Python addicts will want to come to the Chicago Theatre to see John Cleese and the Holy Grail, January 22, and stay at the nearby and affordable Chicago Lake Shore Hotel in Hyde Park!
Yes, the Minister of Silly Walks will talk about his memoir and take questions from the audience . . . following a screening of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail!” OMG!
John Cleese, surely one of the funniest human beings on the planet, was the writer and producer and star of “Fawlty Towers” for PBS, a member of the legendary Monty Python’s Flying Circus ensemble, and he wrote and starred in the TLC documentary “The Human Face with John Cleese.”
John Cleese’s film biography includes “Silverado” (he plays a bad guy!), “The Out of Towners,” “Rat Race,” “A Fish Called Wanda,” “Monty Python’s Life of Brian,” “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” (the attack bunny is till my favorite image), and many more plus television cameos. His books include the memoir “So Anyway . . .” and “Families and How to Survive Them.”
The Chicago Theatre is located at 175 North State Street in the heart of the Loop. For tickets, go online to http://www.thechicagotheatre.com/tickets.html and follow the prompts.
