We will be showing The Last Night of the Pythons live from London’s O2 on Sunday 20 July – the Pythons last ever live performance together. We will also be showing an encore of the live broadcast on Thursday 7th August 2014.
The surviving members of legendary comedy troupe Monty Python are reuniting for a series of live stage shows at London’s O2 Arena, beginning on July 1 for 10 dates, Eric Idle, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones (combined age 357) have revealed that the show will mix greatest hits (given ‘modern, topical, Pythonesque twists’), material that’s never been performed live, and the odd new joke.
The Pythons haven’t performed lived since 1980 at the Hollywood Bowl and this London show will be their first live gig in England for 40 years.
The group said: “Thanks to the wonderful invention of moving pictures, The Last Night of The Pythons is coming to a cinema near you. Get your knotted handkerchiefs out and warm your brains one last time at any one of 450 cinemas across the UK, and 1,500 across the world. Join the crowd live from London’s O2 in a final weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous, farewell to the five remaining Pythons as they head for The Old Jokes Home… on the big screen, in HD.”
