    Spamalot

    anyone else go to see it? if not, you freaking missed out on some great entertainment! I don't follow theatre at all, but my fiancee's parents bought us all tickets and I'm so glad they did. I thought the Monte Python and the Holy Grail was pretty good, not great but good. Spamalot was unbelievably funny!

    I'm not sure whether it was because it was live, but it was one of the funniest things I have seen, maybe ever.

    I saw this title and immediately assumed it was going to be about all the spam e-mail I get in my Iowa State e-mail.

    But that is a negative on seeing the show.

    Re: Spamalot

    My fiance and I have talked about seeing it, since we both like Monty Python stuff, but weren't sure if it would be good. Thanks for the review!

    The great thing about this musical is it sells easily to non monty python people as a broadway musical.

    They really do a good job with this being a musical. The wife and I saw it here in St. Louis. It was very well done. I was most excited to see the bunny of death and the holy hand-grenade. Both of which are faithfully used. The set was really fantastic too.

    It's run was over Sunday. I'm not a Monty Python fan either, but it was pretty funny. No plot to speak of, just a bunch of sketch comedy, with a lot of irreverence. I didn't know you could tell Jew jokes and get away with it
