Trivia / Spamalot

  • Acting for Two: Just like in the movie, even with the Composite Character effect going on, most of the actors play several roles.
  • Actor Allusion: During the original production, after Tim the Enchanter introduces himself, King Arthur (Tim Curry) would cheat out to the audience and mutter "Tim... what a stupid name!"
  • Playing Against Type: Tim Curry as King Arthur in the original Broadway and London casts.
  • Unintentional Period Piece:
    • Not Dead Fred's reference to getting "shot by Michael Moore" in "He Is Not Dead Yet". At the time the musical opened on Broadway, Moore was still making documentaries but his career faltered big time before The New '10s.
    • The jokes about Nokia's success in the playbook became this when they failed to adapt to the smartphone era and wound up being sold to Microsoft.
    • The jokes about Britney Spears, for that matter. Who now?
