Trivia

The Pope/Michelangelo sketch is based on a historical incident. The Renaissance artist Paolo Veronese really did paint a "Last Supper" with extraneous contemporary elements. The Inquisition investigated and advised him to remove those elements. Instead, he really did just rename it - to "Feast in the House of Levi." See more »

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

Quotes

First Yorkshireman: Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad would kill us, and dance about on our graves.
Fourth Yorkshireman: But you try and tell the young people today that... and they won't believe ya'.

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.
