Trivia

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 were performed, as Neil Innes, who is featured prominently here, wrote that film's songs. 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 »

Crazy Credits

When the closing credits begin to roll, the actors can continue to be seen going on and off the stage, in whatever costumes they had on at the time. The phrase "piss off" can also be seen on the video screen during the closing credits roll. See more »

Masters of Their Craft at Work Before a Great Audience
24 July 2011 | by (Bradenton, FL) – See all my reviews

Talk about the perfect relationship between a comedy troupe at the top of their game and an audience that's precisely in-tune with them. The Pythons didn't have a long window of acceptance in the States, but they made the most of it with performances like this one. Uproariously funny, and even though I knew which skits were coming up just by the slightest bits of foreshadowing (and could telegraph them word for word in some cases) I was still laughing until it hurt. I think most of the California crowd was in pretty much the same place that night. An unbelievable performance that makes me really sad I never had a chance to see the Pythons live.
