The reunion of the Monty Python team for a series of live performances at the O2 in London was the most eagerly anticipated comedy event of the year. The first date to be announced sold out all 20,000 tickets in an astonishing 43 seconds. More dates were steadily added eventually culminating in 10 sold out shows.
Filmed live on July 20th on the final night of the run of ten sold out performances at The O2 in London, “Monty Python Live (mostly) – One Down Five to Go” sees the five surviving members – John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin – together with Carol Cleveland, perform many of their classic sketches and much-loved songs.
The show also features film inserts from Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Terry Gilliam’s iconic animations, outrageous dance routines by an ensemble of twenty and a fantastic live orchestra. The show cements the Python’s reputation as the most influential comedy group of all time and, more importantly, still one of the funniest.
