About the Show

His friends include Mick Jagger and Steve Martin, and his fans include the late Elvis Presley. He’s a novelist, a songwriter, an actor, a surrealist and a comic luminary. And he’s the author of the most popular funeral song in the United Kingdom. Eric Idle, most famous as one sixth of the Monty Python comedy group, is coming to Melbourne.

In conversation with Michael Williams, Idle will discuss his new book – dubbed a ‘sortabiography’, and named after the iconic song he wrote in 1979 for Monty Python’s Life of Brian, ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’. Idle will discuss his famous Monty Python roles and collaborators and his fabulous career in the years beyond – writing for broadway, acting in Hollywood and working across film, TV and theatre.

Join us for a night of absurdity, wit, and behind-the-scenes stories, at the Athenaeum Theatre.

Eric Idle will not be signing books after this event. Pre-signed books will be available as part of the ticket and book package.

This event will be Auslan interpreted.
