Movie Info

Like The Secret Policeman's Other Ball, Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl consists of "concert" footage of the nonsensical British Monty Python troupe. This 77-minute collection of skits and blackouts features stalwart Pythoners Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, together with semi-regulars Carol Cleveland and Neil Inness. The troupe's stream-of-consciousness humor transfers well to the L.A. stage; even the most familiar and time-worn bits

Probably the best greatest-hits collection of Python routines.

Monty Python Live At the Hollywood Bowl displays this zany British comedy team's daffy humor to good effect.

Audience Reviews for Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl

First of all; it's just amazing seeing the legendary Pythons performing the most popular sketches live, in front of a huge audience, similar to a music concert. The crowd is so into it, they seem to know the lines by heart. Still, they just love it and it makes for a very special event with a fantastic atmosphere.

My favourite sketch (and it IS hard to pick just one!) is the "Church Police" sketch. Why? Because the otherwise super-professional Pythons can't keep from laughing themselves as things go slightly wrong. Just look when Terry Jones' wig comes right off as he jumps... They crack up. I have never seen that happen before, and every time I see it I laugh so hard it hurts.

If you have never seen the TV-series before, this may not seem as all that much of a great movie. But being an almost fanatical fan of the Pythons, seeing these sketches live is a wholly enjoyable experience.

The only sad thing is that most of us never attended the bloody thing. Nonetheless, this is a must see.
