Monty Python To Bid Farewell In a Simulcast Show

Soulskill posted about 5 months ago | from the soon-to-be-pining-for-the-fjords dept.

United Kingdom 86

dacarr writes "The five remaining members of Monty Python will be performing in the O2 Arena, and their last show as a comedy troupe will be simulcast across hundreds of theaters in the UK, and roughly 1,500 more across the world, according to the Guardian. Michael Palin says this is really going to be the last time before the Pythons cease to be. Well, at least, before Monty Python, as a comedy troupe, runs down the curtain and joins the bleedin' choir invisible."

No Graham Chapman? (5, Funny)

Anonymous Coward | about 5 months ago | (#46846133)

The only absent member will be Graham Chapman, who died in 1989 at the age of 48.

They could dig him up and have him fall out of cupboards, and other visual gags.
The audition would be a mere formality.

rubycodez (864176) | about 5 months ago | (#46846281)

1989 really was the end of Monty Python, some partial reunions since then, some interviews....but if more than three or four members performed something together since then I don't recall it. They were already 45 years and older then, and all went on to other things. 20 years for a comedy group is a good run.

IIRC, there was the Live at Aspen show which had them all retiring (again). I also rather enjoyed Almost the Truth - The Lawyer's Cut.

Re:No Graham Chapman? (1)

rubycodez (864176) | about 5 months ago | (#46849897)

Yes but those not performances. Live as Aspen show was talkshow/interview format with (very hilarious) reminiscing, not a perfermance except for the gag with the urn. Almost the Truth had interviews with them

The members may perish but Monty Python itself is a remarkable show that has influenced later shows and will therefore live on long after the members playing have perished.

Not everyone likes their humor, and few likes everything, but they still mark a turning point in the history of humor shows - venturing into the "forbidden" part of humor so far and strong that it becomes absurd and it's no longer possible to take them seriously.

Yes and no.. ..the Monty Python writing style was already visible in At Last The 1948 Show (1967-69), especially in the sketches that were reused, but the way the show was cut owed a lot to Q (69-82). Either way Spike was a major influence, so you say potato.. ..

Republican politians are so stupid it makes it seem all very funny.

As an example that just came to me, Michelle Bachman, a US senator from up north, Wisonsin I think, and other tea partiers, closed down the government for a few weeks last year.

This included the WWII memorial in D.C. So, she and her cohorts go their for a photo op and she and her ilk get on the case of the poor old soul keeping the memory closed, berating the guy for keeping the visitors out.

Haha, she was the one that closed it in the first place. This was all on the nightly news for a few days. Hilarious.

It's polarized: republicans are idiots, or at least do and say the stupidist of things, and the other side, the democrats, can't get anything done because they have to work with idiots who don't want to do anything (it's black president thing, is what it all comes down to -- few will say that, though).

MP comes from a different time. Is Spike Jones funny? Are the stooges? The Marx brothers? Personally, I don't "get" either of them. They're just not funny. Stupid, yes, odd, maybe, but funny, no.

I'm fairly sure in their time they were a riot. MP humor is one of absurdity. And that is of course dependent on a society that puts a lot of emphasis on "normality" and conformity, something that certainly was the case with Britain back in those days.

Of course that loses its effect today in a far more "permissive" society.

The problem is that except to conservatives, they weren't funny when they were young. Unless they magically got a lot more talented, they're simply not going to be funny now.

I see a few problems here.

First, there's quite a bit of intellect and wit behind that "stupid" humor. I'm sorry you don't recognize it, but that's your limitation, not theirs.

Second, you have a clear bias against the religious and the conservative, assuming them to lack empathy.

Third, "unempathetic" isn't a word, according to the UK and US editions of the Oxford English Dictionary (and the little red squiggle).

"The profession of shaman has many advantages. It offers high status with a safe livelihood free of work in the dreary, sweaty sense. In most societies it offers legal privileges and immunities not granted to other men. But it is hard to see how a man who has been given a mandate from on High to spread tidings of joy to all mankind can be seriously interested in taking up a collection to pay his salary; it causes one to suspect that the shaman is on the moral level of any other con man.

Although The Flying Circus has a lot of comedy gold in it, few people would idolize Monty Python based on it alone. In fact, you can be fairly sure that a lot of people who haven't seen the Holy Grail-movie think Monty Python-stuff is dreadful.

BTW, a number of the Python-movies have been released on Bluray. Definitely worth a buy/download and subsequent rewatch.

There's still a lot of Python that's ahead of *today*, not to mention the time that they made it.

Try showing Life of Brian to your Christian buddies.

That old woman's tirade against the lady of the lake will always serve as a wake up call against mythical reasoning. Basically a quarter of Python highlights the vapidity of public figures and the perception of the figures. That will never get old.

The summarizing Proust competition will forever perfectly satirize doomed attempts to bring high art to the mass market.

The U.S. at the moment could use a little bit of mocking of the military, Python style.

Simulcast theaters? (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 5 months ago | (#46849101)

Where can I find a list of the theaters that will show the show?

I'm from Brazil... and I had two tickets, but I got a new job and my vacation plans changed... so I gave my tickets to a friend from London.

I really hope I can find a simulcast transmission around here.
