Joe Pasquale Returns as 'King Arthur' in West End's SPAMALOT
Actor and comedian Joe Pasquale is now galloping back onto the West End stage (to the sound of banging coconut shells) as he reprises his much loved role of King Arthur in Monty Python's Spamalot at The Playhouse Theatre London from Monday 20th January 2014.
With his hilarious performances as James Bond and Flash Gordon in the final series of ITV1's Dancing on Ice, Joe yet again proved to the nation that he's a natural entertainer and ITV's loss is Spamalot's gain.
Having first played King Arthur for a successful six week run last summer, alongside Bonnie Langford who starred as The Lady of The Lake, Joe is pleased as punch to be back in the role (he would be pleased as Holy Grail Ale, but it's not really got the same ring to it) and will now star with actress, Carley Stenson, who has played The Lady of The Lake since the start of November 2013.
Joe says: 'I loved my time as playing King Arthur in Spamalot last year. I am very excited to have been asked to return. I will be joining a fantastic cast and can't wait to get started later this month.'
He was originally able to don the King's crown after being reunited with his former Pirates of Penzance co-star Bonnie Langford via Twitter and came to see her as The Lady of The Lake. She thought he'd make a great King Arthur and so put the idea to the show's producers. With his effervescent personality, squeaky vocal range and energetic nature, Joe was an instant hit with audiences and the cast alike.
