Being new to the board I just have to ask, has anyone here ever seen any of the Pythons in person? I'd love to read about it. (i would have said "I'd love to hear about it' but we are on a message board[:p])I've had several oportunities to see Eric her In Maryland but Lack of funds dictated otherwise...I hope to get another chance.

Yeah, I saw Idle on the Greedy Bastard Tour, and it was a night I won't soon forget. He is so funny!

Yes, Eric on the Greedy Bastard tour came very near where I live, at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey. Unfortunately, a prior travel commitment prevented me from seeing the show. Pythonline, could you provide a brief description of what he was up to? Was it a question and answer type thing? Or did he do some of his characters or some new material or what? I deeply regret having missed it.

Salad as in lettuce, cucumbers, radishes, yeah, yeah, yeah.

I've also never seen any of the pythons live. But would love to, does anyone know in any of them are coming to Australia in the future near or distant?

Greedy Bastard tour, in synopsis.

Opening, the theme music is played in the backround, suddenly, we see a gumby walking out, trying to figure out what's going on.

The best way to put it, the show was a stand up comedy routine with python skits and songs, There was even a sing along from the Phylosopher's Drinking Song. I don't remember if there was a Q&A, but I'm pretty sure there wasn't. If you ever get the chance to see him on tour, don't miss it, its a lot of fun.

As for Australia, I thought I heard something about Idle touring austalia after the greedy bastard tour, but I'm not sure about that.

Eric Idle was at the University of Buffalo, NY, in October '03. I heard he was hilarious. I will definitely make it a point to see him next time.<hr noshade size="1">

If you don't mind my saying so, you're badly in need of an expensive course of psychiatric treatment.
