SPAMTASTIC Reprise Nears

Since leaving Spamlot in May, jokes have just not been funny. Food has lost its taste. The grass is no longer green -- the sky no longer blue. And babies WON’T stop crying!! I’m so excited about coming back to the funniest show in the world! -- Clay Aiken

Fans are not alone in enthusiastically counting down to Clay Aiken's return to Spamalot on Broadway. Sir Robin is, too!

articles about the entertainer's highly anticipated reprise of the Sir Robin role in Monty Python's Spamalot quote the above paragraph. "Crying babies" references his newest real life role as father to Parker Foster Aiken, born on August 8.

CA fans have kept the Spamalot ticket line busy securing seats for the singer's second Broadway run Sept. 19 - Jan. 4. For a sneak preview/review, here is Yollie950's montage

Clay Aiken is WONDERFUL as Brave Brave Sir Robin.

I am so ready for Spam II. Even though I can't go back to NYC this time, I love all the reports and pictures. Clay Aiken fans know how to feed the rest of us who can't get to the MAN in person.

Loved the Clay Aiken Spamalot montages. I hope everyone who didn't get to Spamalot the first time around will have an opportunity to go this time.

Spamalot is one of the best shows on Broadway and certainly the funniest! Clay Aiken's role has many fun parts which Clay does so well. I love his facial expressions in this show, he is very expressive. And he CAN dance!

Hope Clay Aiken does the stage door again, but if he continues to see the same faces at the front of the barricades he will probably back off the stage door appearances. Here's a tip--he would like to see some different people up front every night so all fans have a chance.

God! He's gorgeous and so talented. Does anyone else hyperventilate when he slaps his behind?

redca40 said...

Clay Aiken is marvelous in Spamalot. He's the best Sir Robin I've ever seen.

Clay Aiken is excellent in his Spamalot roles! I wish I could go back!

I'm so happy for Clay that he's getting to do something that he loves, back with his Spam family.
