Monty Python Live July 20th on Gold

The final Monty Python reunion show at London's O2 Arena is to be broadcast live on television.
Monty Python Live (Mostly) will be screened on comedy channel Gold on 20 July, marking the end of the group's 10-night run.
The three-hour event will be preceded with a live backstage programme.
"We are very excited that not only do we get the chance to screw up on stage, we get a chance to screw up live on TV too," Python member Eric Idle said.

It is the first time in 40 years that members John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin have appeared together on a UK stage.
Graham Chapman died of cancer in 1989.

Re: Monty Python Live July 20th on Gold

I'm a fan of Monty Python. Watched them when they were first aired.
But I have to admit looking through rose tinted glasses.
Yes there were some great and funny sketches but there was an awful lot of dire dross as well.
Watching their classic sketches great fun. Watching some shows in there entirety not so good.

I agree with that.
I actually think there was more dross than good stuff.

Downloading both MP programmes from Sunday Night.
So much easier to spool and choose on Quicktime.
As others have said, in the cold light of day, and with hindsight, perhaps they weren't so good, though at the time they were ground breaking.

Absolutely.
Some of the good stuff was very good, though.
