1969 is remembered as the year that man walked on the moon; Elvis Presley
took up residency in Las Vegas; and Monty Python's Flying Circus
first aired on BBC television. 2007 will go down in the history books as the year that the inspired lunacy of Monty Python came to The Grail Theater at Wynn Las Vegas with the smash hit show Monty Python's "Spamalot."Eric Idle
has created a deliriously funny live spectacle which tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail. The show features lusty maidens, dancing divas, a killer rabbit and the only legless knight appearing on the Las Vegas Strip.
"Spamalot" will star John O'Hurley
, best known as J. Peterman on Seinfeld
. O'Hurley was the ultimate champion on season one of Dancing with the Stars
and is the new face of "Family Feud." O'Hurley, who has worked on stage throughout his career, starred on Broadway in Chicago, as Billy Flynn.
Monty Python's "Spamalot" is written by Eric Idle and is lovingly ripped off from the motion picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail
by Graham Chapman
