Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl

Friday, October 30 - Saturday, October 31, 2009

“Here they all are — Mr. Cleese, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin — doing a number of new sketches, redoing some that are already familiar from their records… The surprise is that the Python people are great theatrical performers, and their stage work is just as madly effective as their film and television work. In this Hollywood Bowl appearance, Sept. 26-29 1980, they integrate their ”live” routines with lots of film clips, including surreal graphics, which are projected on a giant screen at the back of the stage. This photographed recording of the stage show is not a conventional film, but it’s the next best thing to seeing the Python troupe in person.” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times
