Oh What a Night!!!
Interspaced with this were some clips from some of their films and the series itself. They then did one of their skits. It was all hilarious.
There was an intermission and then Cleese came out and did a monologue and a bunch of jokes, he still has perfect timing.
After that Idle came out and did some of his songs.
The whole time the show was going on a lady had been "signing" the dialogue for the hearing impaired. So when Eric started doing some of his "naughty" songs he pointed out the lady signing and it was hilarious what she was signing for some of the lyrics.
We had a couple of audience singalong including The Philosoper's Song. The lyrics were up on the screen, but Mac and I both remembered most of the words.
They finished with a question and answer session and then Eric led us all in Always Look on the Bright Side from Life of Brian.
Given their ages, Cleese said he was 76 and Idle was 72, we didn't expect a long show, probably about an hour and 20-30 minutes. Wrong! It went well over 2 hours and never dragged.
It was an absolutely perfect evening.
