Random Bit of Awesomeness: Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

Hey everybody, Rick here.  The Broadway musical Spamalot has a special place in my heart.  I had the opportunity to see in Las Vegas a week after it opened and on my 30th birthday to boot.  About a month later, I had the opportunity to see the show in its entirety in Dallas as the Vegas version was edited down to not give the benefit of an intermission.  However, while waiting to see the show in Vegas, I had possession of the original Broadway Cast Recording and listened to it as much as I could. So much so that I knew most of the songs by heart.  I am a musical theater nerd.  What can I say?   Anyway, the performers in the original cast included Hank Azaria, David Hyde Pierce, and the incomparable Tim Curry.  I present to you here, the performance of one of the songs used in the musical but was repurposed from another famous Monty Python movie, the Life of Brian.  Even still, the use of the song here is incredibly funny and makes for a great moment where the audience can sing along with the cast.  There may be more Broadway geekiness in the future!  Enjoy!
