To celebrate the publication of his third volume of Diaries, Travelling To Work, Michael Palin presents a brand new two-part stage show, looking back at twenty-five years of exploring the world and nearly fifty years in radio, television, books and films. The first half is a whistle-stop tour of the globe. Highlights and lowlights, adventures and cock-ups, beauties and beasts, wonders and wash-outs, all vividly illustrated with a special selection of photos and footage shot during the eight TV travel series that began with Around The World in Eighty Days.
In the second half of the show, Michael takes a free-wheeling look back 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. Lots of memories, with one thing in common. A love of laughter.
