Monty Python's Spamalot is a musical comedy adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Like the motion picture, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian legend.

King Arthur is traveling around England recruiting his Knights of the Round Table. When he and his band of misfit knights finally gather in Camelot, they receive a charge from God to find the Holy Grail. The quest brings King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to strange places and into the company of strange characters, challenging them to keep their heads on straight or die terribly weird deaths.

The original 2005 Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols, received 14 Tony Awards nominations, winning in three categories, including Best Musical. It had an initial run of 1,575 performances. Tim Curry starred as King Arthur in the original Broadway and West End productions.
