The cast of hit stage show MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT has a backup just in case anything goes wrong during the performance - Hank Azaria's The Simpsons voices.

The actor, who is among the stars of the show, also voices a host of characters for The Simpsons - and has already been asked to step out front and perform his vocal talents to keep the show going when problems occur.

Castmate DAVID HYDE PIERCE says, "In Chicago, we had a moment where the set broke and we had to stop the show and they brought the curtain down.

"They sent Hank out front and he did stand-up for five minutes and then ran out of material and started doing Simpsons voices. We were very grateful."
