Eric Idle's What About Dick? in Los Angeles

Saw "What About Dick?" Eric Idle's play about.. ummm well I'm not too sure what it was about... seriously.. I really think they should have handed out scripts so we could follow along. HOWEVER. I sure had a great time sitting in the FRONT freaking row .... drawings posted here. The cast was great and Eric Idle sure looked like he was having a blast (but then again he had a script to follow the mayhem).

The show was presented as a Radio Play.. oh and it was also a musical complete with bagpipes for Billy Connelly to sing along to. I haven't figured that part out either.

The Great One, Mark Evanier, and I had a lot of fun trying to figure out what everyone was saying especially Billy Connelly. We finally gave up and just laughed along with the rest of the crowd. Mark's review of the proceeding can be found over on his site

Tracy Ulman was wonderful as was Eddie Izzard who, I found out, is a terrific talent but not at doing the voice of a man from India but he more than made up for it with is charming wit.

I'm sorry I didn't get to draw the entire cast but I was laughing too much.

Please don't forget to catch my comic The Green Monkeys over at The Green Monkeys


  1. Michael!

    It was good meeting you at the show; I'm glad Mark introduced us.

    I cannot say that I recommend the play, but I can certainly recommend being in a room... even a very large room... with Idle, Izzard, Ullman, Curry, Leeves, Connelly, etc., whenever one has the chance to do so. The evening was well worth the experience.

    1. Ummmmm, that IS a recommendation. Snob.

  2. Mickey..great work as always are truly gifted!

  3. I like your Green Monkeys. The panel with the dog chasing the snowman is Great! Woop!
