Doing a School Project on Mike by ilikelaughs on 31 October 2007 4:58pm
 
Wouldn't it be great to have a little hello from the Python himself as a primary source? I'm in Gr.8 and for our project we were supposed to write about someone famous we admire who has done something for the world. If I can't get in touch with Mr. Palin (which is most likely) anyone have interesting facts?

Woah! Now where do we start?!
Personally, I think it's worth looking up the Stammering Centre in London, (http://www.stammeringcentre.org/s-The_Michael_Palin_Centre) which Michael gave his name to. It will tell you a lot about his charity work.

Thank you Bunniegirl.
My teacher for this project is such a bag. It's like she's trying to fail us. Please! send positive energy out there. I would love the day where I could stand in front of her face and say: "I did a bit extra for my project" and show her a letter from him.

There's a site called http://www.contactvip.com/ that will give you contact info for celebrities FOR A PRICE. You have to get a one-month membership to get anything more than a confirmation that they do have the address. So you'll have to get someone with a credit card to pay for it. But it does say that 7 people who paid for the contact info received personal replies from Michael, fwiw.

IMDbPro also has info for a fee:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001589/contact

I couldn't find anything useful on Pythonline.

Best of luck!

Thank you mrsthing as well. For the project we're supposed to dress and act like the person so it's from their perspective. I better start making my gumby costume!

Er, why don't you just write to Michael at the Prominent Palin Office, which is shown on the site?!

Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit! It was here all the time! (I did try looking, but there's a LOT of information on this site, and I was at work at the time.)
