News   Knights on Broadway: Spamalot Tony-Nominated Cast Members Guest on TV
On their quest to the 2005 Tony Awards broadcast on June 5, Monty Python's Spamalot nominated cast members Tim Curry and Hank Azaria are making the rounds of television shows.

Nominated for their roles as King Arthur and Sir Lancelot (among others), respectively, Curry and Azaria will be guests on CBS's "Early Show" June 2 during the 8:30 AM half-hour.

Azaria then goes on to appear on ABC's "Live! with Regis and Kelly" June 3, from 9-10 AM and on MSNBC TV's "Hot List" at Noon and 5 PM.

The actors will be also be featured with their Tony Award nominated new musical on UPN's "Hooray for Broadway," (June 4 at 7 PM) and WCBS TV's "On the Aisle at the Tonys" (June 5 from Noon-1 PM). All times mentioned are ET. Check your local listings.


The self-proclaimed "lovingly ripped-off" show features a book by Eric Idle, based on the screenplay of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" which he co-wrote with Monty Python creators Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. The new score with music and lyrics by Idle and composer John Du Prez ("A Fish Called Wanda") also includes songs ("Brave Sir Robin" and "Knights of the Round Table") from the original film as well as Python signature "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life." Spamalot tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table on their quest for the Holy Grail — with a short stop in the dazzling Spam-filled land of Camelot.

Tim Curry, David Hyde Pierce and Hank Azaria star with Christopher Sieber, Michael McGrath, Steve Rosen and Sara Ramirez with an ensemble that includes John Bolton, Christian Borle, Brad Bradley, Thomas Cannizzaro, Kevin Covert, Jennifer Frankel, Lisa Gajda, Jenny Hill, Emily Hsu, James Ludwig, Abbey O'Brien, Daniel Pearce, Ariel Reid, Pamela Remler, Greg Reuter, Brian Shepard, Rick Spaans and Scott Taylor.
