Saw Eric Idle in Portland, OR last night... by Valarie on 9 December 2003 9:54pm
 
And he was hysterically funny. He did 2 Michael Palin pieces (lumberjack and argument clinic), lots of other Monty Python pieces and some other old and interesting stuff (including a Beyond the Fringe skit). There were some great sing-alongs, too. A really wonderful evening. If any of you can catch the show (and afford it), it's really worth going to.

.saw his show in 2000 in San Francisco and wonder just what else would be in it currently?? terribly funny and quite pythonish but wonder just what else new could be inserted....love the lumberjack song and he did it well, but after all it is really a Palin song and thought so at the time...jolly fun and I still have the ticket stub to remind when I saw his show: 5.20.00...he is actually in SF again last nite and tonite but rather expensive considering the tix and parking and of course dinner, drinks before ...and of course, after.....well, not...but he is here in the Bay Area as we speak. wish I could be there...but once in a lifetime might have to suffice......keeping my souvenir stub for the time being .....

I saw Eric in Los Angeles several months ago during a taping of Bill Maher's show "Real Time" for HBO. I was sitting and he was standing about a foot away from me as he was preparing to go onstage. I waved shyly and he gave me a nod and a wink. Still cute after all these years!

I got to go in SF as one of the street team people. Got to go for free which allowed money enough to buy six coconuts for the other people on my team and carve them up. We got coconuts, t-shirts, and even video tapes signed and got to take pictures with him. Hooray for digital cameras and the incredibly long time it takes to take a picture. My friends and I got to hug him while the camera charged and messed up and charged again. Yay technology!
