Squeaky-voiced funny man Joe Pasquale is teaming up with his actor son in the award-winning comedy musical Spamalot in Wimbledon this week.
Having travelled the length and breadth of the country in search of The Holy Grail, the reality show veteran will reprise his role as King Arthur and continue on his quest at New Wimbledon Theatre with the help of his actor son Joe Tracini.
Joe is thrilled to join his father Joe on stage in the role of Patsy in the hugely popular comedy jaunt which is (loosely) based on the classic film, Monty Python And The Holy Grail.
He said: “When I was little, I had three dreams for when I grew up… to be in a musical, to work with my Dad, and to bang two halves of a coconut together on a nightly basis.
“Playing Patsy in Spamalot is making all of them come true at once.
“I’m honoured that I’m being trusted with the part, to sing the classic song Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life, and to be joining such a brilliant company.
“Come and see us please, it’s funnier if you’re there!”
Best known for his roles as Dennis Savage in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks and as DK in BBC Three’s Coming of Age, Joe Tracini studied at the world-famous Italia Conti Academy of Arts in London before landing his first role in My Spy Family on Cartoon Network’s sister channel, Boomerang.
He was nominated for three Inside Soap Awards and a British Soap Award during his time in Hollyoaks.
Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) along with cows, killer rabbits and French people.
The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the classic Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.
The latest tour, directed by Christopher Luscombe, follows hot on the heels of the Monty Python Reunion at The O2 and Eric Idle’s acclaimed performance of Always Look On The Bright Side of Life at the 2012 Olympic closing ceremony.
