Monty Python's Spamalot is a hoot! It's witty, crude, offensive and hilarious all blended together, kind of like, well, the ingredients in a can of Spam.

I didn't want to Wicked it (loved the book, couldn't get into the play - she's not supposed to have arms! is a good example, then didn't enjoy rereading the book) so I specifically stayed away from brushing up on the Holy Grail, Life of Brian and other Monty Python DVDs and videos. Obviously, from the howls of recognition in the crowd, many folks spoke Pythonese. But even if you don't, the crazy dance performances, wonderful costumes and props, and amazingly clever staging will have you doing the 100 sit-up laughter.

It was practically a full house at the Ahmanson, and this was on a Thursday night, so you know it's gotta be good! Go see it before it leaves on September 6th, so that you, too, can always look on the bright side of life.
