"What could be finer at the end of a long life in comedy, than a chance to
reunite with old pals and say goodbye to all our fans in one final mad musical
show,” said Eric Idle. “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 in cinemas too."
Monty Python rightfully hold a place among the world’s finest comedians,
influencing generations and revolutionizing comedy on their way to greatness.
Monty Python first hit U.K. TV screens with ”Monty Python’s Flying Circus,”
which saw 45 episodes broadcast over four BBC series between 1969 and 1974.
The Pythons were an instant success and became the face of British comedy.
They went on to achieve overwhelming international acclaim with the huge
success of films such as “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” in 1975, “Life of
Brian” in 1979 and their final film, “The Meaning of Life” in 1983.
“Monty Python fans won’t want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to
see this iconic comedy troupe in their only onstage reunion,” said Dan
Diamond, senior vice president of Fathom Events. “The Python’s will be at
their finest, leaving fans in movie theaters rolling in the aisles as they
relive some of the greatest moments in comedy history.”
“We’re delighted to be working with Fathom to bring this very special event to
audiences throughout the United States,” said Marc Allenby, director of
distribution at Picturehouse Entertainment.
