British comedy legends and founders of the iconic Monty Python troupe John Cleese and Eric Idle have announced they'll be heading to Australia together next year to perform their brand new live show, John Cleese & Eric Idle: Together Again At Last...For The Very First Time.

Cleese and Idle will take their show around all around the country throughout February and March, starting on the Gold Coast before moving on to perform in Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.

The new show will blend scripted and improvised sketches with storytelling, musical numbers, exclusive footage and an extended Q&A with audiences.

Commenting on the upcoming Australian tour Cleese said, "Eric and I had huge fun touring the States in October and now we can bring our show to the friendliest people in the world."

"No one show will be the same and all of them will annoy the Politically Correct."

Idle added, "Having once married a Sheila and as the father of a half Australian son I look forward to touring one of my all-time favourite places."
Tickets for all shows go on sale from 10am on Monday 21 December. For more information, head to theGuide.
