Michael Palin to visit Crawley


Writer, actor, comedian and adventurer Michael Palin is bringing his stage show to the Hawth.

To celebrate the publication of his third volume of diaries, Travelling To Work, the Monty Python legend will be looking back at 25 years of exploring the world and nearly 50 years in radio, television, books and films.

The first half of the show will be a whistle-stop tour of the globe. Highlights and lowlights, adventures and cock-ups, beauties and beasts, wonders and wash-outs, all illustrated with a selection of photos and footage shot during eight TV travel series that began with Around The World in Eighty Days.

In the second half of the show, Michael will take a look at the other side of his life – the love of comedy that took him from schoolboy in Sheffield to Python at the O2.

He’ll talk about the joy of writing and acting that has produced two novels and taken him from a dead parrot salesman to the headmaster who fights back in GBH.

The show will be at The Hawth on September 7 at 7,30pm.
