Britain’s Living Legends of Comedy John Cleese and Eric Idle  to Perform at Plaza Theatre

Still together again, Britain’s living legends of comedy, John Cleese and Eric Idle, announce their must see show John Cleese & Eric Idle: Together Again At Last…For The Very First Time in El Paso at the Plaza Theatre on November 26 at 8:00 PM. Tickets go on-sale to the public Monday, June 20 at 10 AM.

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?

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 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 (and Canada) 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, Salem, 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.

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.
