A collection of skits that made the Python troup famous, performed live at the Hollywood Bowl. Included are the singing philosophers, lumberjacks, the pope, and a suspiciously-male looking seabird vendor. Written by

Although the Pythons had released two feature films of all original material by this point in time, no material from either of them is used or performed here. It is rather surprising that no songs from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) were performed, as Neil Innes, who is featured prominently here, wrote that film's songs. See more »

It's great to see that Python was an funny onstage as on
Here, the troupe successfully stages a live medley of some of their
skits. Interesting enough, British TV executives never thought Americans
would find Monty Python funny, but American audiences (especially college
students) became huge fans. The level of fanaticism is evident in the way
that this audience is as familiar with the sketches as the members of
are, and applaud raucously as soon as some of the opening lines are heard.
As a treat, rent this along with "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."
Experienced Python fans can progress right into "Life of Brian" and
