Trivia

Some changes were made to the sketches for this venue. The line in "Nudge, Nudge" about Terry Jones's wife were changed to say she was from "Glenndale, California." Obscenities that were forbidden on TV were used freely in many cases, and potentially confusing Anglicisms were altered ("dustman" became "garbageman" and so on). See more »

Goofs

Che Guevara is referred to as "the Bolivian guerrilla leader". While he traveled extensively in Bolivia, he's originally from Argentina. See more »

Quotes

Husband: It's the Bishop of Leicester.

Wife: Shouldn't you call the church?
Son: Call the Church Police.
Husband: Good idea.

Hello! I'm here for an argument.
24 August 2000 | by (Swedois!) – See all my reviews

Okay, this is great. Monty Python - live, in front of a huge audiens - gives this movie a good sense of atmosphere (all the happy people you see that is so happy you would think they'd die of it) that enlightens the Python show - that must go on!

Several of the classic scetches is performed; The Person Looking For An Argument, Little Redriding Hood, The Nutcase Olympics, The Lumberjacker and several more of great quality. You'll laugh like a maniac!

**** 1/2 of *****
