About

To celebrate the paperback publication of Erebus: The Story of A ShipMonty Python star and much-loved television globe-trotter Michael Palin brings you a brand new one-man stage show. 
 
In the first part of the show, Michael brings to life the thrilling story of HMS Erebus, the tough little ship that took on the Antarctic and the Arctic in the 1840s, and which was the subject of his latest bestselling book. His richly illustrated talk conveys the triumph and tragedy of the ship’s short and doomed life, and what it was about it that made him so keen to tell its story.
 
In the second half, Michael tells his own life story, including how his three favourite subjects at school (Geography, History and Comedy) have shaped his life, from Monty Python to Ripping Yarns and the many television travel series that have taken him all around the world, from the North Pole to North Korea.
 
With previously unseen footage and untold stories, Michael shows how comedy and adventure have been natural bedfellows during a rich and diverse career.
