Eric Idle, star of stage, screen and crossword puzzle, has often been compared to Noel Coward. But never favourably.

He has been in Show Business since 1961. “Unfortunately I can’t find the exit” he says. “My role in life seems to be cheering people up,” he adds glumly.

His new show, coincidentally called Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, Live! is a nostalgic one-man musical reflecting his love of Comedy, Music, Life and what he calls Mock and Roll, a weird hybrid of comedy and music, with tributes to George Harrison and Robin Williams and a salute to The Rutles, the Beatle parody movie he created which was the world’s first-ever mocumentary about the legendary pre-fab four whose legend will last a lunchtime.
