Monty Python are set to fly again, for a final reunion, well, sort of. The stars of Monty Python will perform live on stage together for the first time, since performing at the Hollywood Bowl on 15 September 1980 and 40 years after they last appeared on stage in the UK at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. The hugely anticipated live show will take place on 1st July 2014 at The O2, London.
At a combined age of just 357, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will once again take to the stage and perform some of Monty Python’s greatest hits with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists.
Monty Python rightfully hold a place amongst the world’s finest ever comedians, influencing a generation and revolutionising comedy on their way to greatness. This return promises to be the biggest live event of 2014.
Monty Python first hit our screens with the Flying Circus, which saw 45 episodes broadcast over four BBC series between 1969 and 1974. The Pythons were an instant success and became the face of British comedy. They went on to achieve overwhelming international acclaim with the huge success of films such as “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” in 1975, “Life of Brian” in 1979 and their final film, “The Meaning of Life” in 1983.
