Joe Pasquale returns as King Arthur in Spamalot
Comedian Joe Pasquale is to reprise his role of King Arthur in Monty Python's Spamalot, at The Playhouse Theatre from 20 January 2014. Pasquale first played the role for a six week run in the summer of 2013.
The comedian has appeared on stage in six Royal Variety Performances, and in the touring productions of Mel Brooks’ ‘The Producers’, ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and Tom Stoppard’s ‘Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead’. His numerous live stand up shows included the 1996 tour ‘Live and Squeaky’. On screen Joe Pasquale has voiced characters for the Hollywood films ‘Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties’ and ‘Horton Hears A Who!’ while his TV roles have included hosting ITV’s ‘The Price Is Right’ and ‘An Audience With Joe Pasquale’, as well as guest presenting Channel 4’s ‘The Paul O’Grady Show’. Most famously, he won the 2004 series of ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’.
Pasquale has recently taken part in the latest, and final, series of ITV's 'Dancing On Ice', but made an early exit during round one last Sunday. He had greater success when appearing in the 2013 series of the show, leaving in round six.
Monty Python's Spamalot, returned to the West End, opening at the Playhouse Theatre, on 20 Nov 2012, following previews 14 Nov 2012, booking to 22 Feb 2014.
Monty Python's Spamalot is "lovingly ripped off from Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Book by Eric Idle, score by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.
"Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation’s Favourite Comedy Song (Reader’s Digest Poll 2010 - before it went bust) Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life."
