Monty Python stars auctioning cameo role in live show

The stars of Monty Python are raising money for charity by offering a cameo part in their live show to the highest bidder. The British comedy troupe is reuniting for a string of 10 performances at London’s O2 Arena in July (14).
They are offering one lucky winner the chance to appear on stage on opening night (01Jul14) during their ‘Bruces’ sketch from TV show Monty Python’s Flying Circus. The skit plays on Australian stereotypes and all characters are named Bruce, one of which will be the auction winner.
The sale on eBay.com closes on 26 June (14) and the money will go to The Mercury Phoenix Trust, an AIDS charity set up by members of rock band Queen following the death of their frontman Freddie Mercury in 1991.
Auctions for a Bruce cameo during the other live shows are taking place on various ticketing and charity websites, with each winning bid going to a different cause.
