"Triangle comedy fans, help us welcome two of the world’s wittiest comedians John Cleese and Eric Idle for one night only. This never-before-seen show promises an up-close-and-personal experience with the geniuses behind Monty Python that will have you laughing out loud like the first time you saw the knights who say ‘Ni!’," said Emily McLoughlin, Marketing Director for DPAC.

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, aquatic juggling and an extended audience Q&A to craft 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?

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.
