Added DiffLines:

* IncrediblyLamePun: After the Black Knight's arms are lopped off, a monk enters from stage left calling "[[AccentDepundent A'MS]] FOR THE POOR!" and happily gathers up his chopped-off limbs.[[note]]If you don't get it, he's saying "alms" as in donations, but it sounds like "arms."[[/note]]

* ActingForTwo: Just like in the movie, even with the CompositeCharacter effect going on, most of the actors play several roles.

** ...and the fact that this actually counts as TookALevelInBadass compared to the movie pretty much says all there is to say about how non-{{Badass}} Robin is.

Added DiffLines:

*** One American production in 2016 had the Knight Who So Recently Said "NI!", instead of the usual nonsensical words, quote a condensed version of the many speeches delivered by Creator/DonaldTrump during his presidential campaign, occasionally altered to reference the musical's story and setting (e.g. building a wall around Camelot, and making Camelot pay for it). It was difficult to hear some of his lines over the audience roaring with laughter. When King Arthur tries to repeat back the knight's new (and rather lengthy) title, he trails off, sighs, and mutters that kings are supposed to be impartial.

* AdaptationalBadass: Though still the LovableCoward and generally inept knight (who enlisted mainly because he mistakenly thought being a knight was all about singing and dancing, not fighting), Sir Robin has actually Taken A (Slight) Level In Badass compared to his movie incarnation: In ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'' one of his brave deeds was ''nearly'' standing up to the Vicious Chicken of Bristol. In ''Spamalot'' he actually killed the chicken!

* AudienceParticipationSong: "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" from ''Film/LifeOfBrian'', because we defy you to find a single Python fan who doesn't know it. The curtain call reprise encourages participation, in fact.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Lancelot. When Herbert's father attempts OffingTheOffspring twice, Lance takes offense and protectors Herbert. In the film, he merely saw it as an UnusuallyUnininterestingSight.

The 'plot' is introduced by [[InteractiveNarrator the historian]], who gives an overview of the setting: medieval England. UsefulNotes/KingArthur and his servant Patsy arrive on the scene in search of knights for the round table. They promptly get into an argument about swallows with some guards. They find Robin, a plague victim collector, and Lancelot (who is trying to dispose of a man who turns out to be "Not Dead Yet") and convince them to join the quest. Next, Arthur convinces the politically active peasant Dennis to become Sir Galahad, with help from the Lady of the Lake. Somewhere, they also pick up Sir Bedevere (and the aptly-named Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Show).

After arriving in a UsefulNotes/LasVegas-inspired Camelot, the knights are contacted by the voice of God (a recording of John Cleese or in the touring production, Eric Idle) who wants them to search for the Holy Grail. After some silly encounters and surprising discoveries, Arthur and the knights end up finding the Grail in an unexpected place.
