Great to see the Python cast together again.
8 January 2003 | by (Bedfordshire , England) – See all my reviews

This stage production is a must see for any Monty Python fan. We the all the Python Cast , including Graham Chapmans ashes,on stage talking about how they all started and about the famous sketches and films and we see lots of clips of the show and films.What is great is that they all seem to get on with each other and enjoy reminissing .There are some very funny moments involving the Late Graham Chapman and the exeptance speech from John Cleese at the end had me laughing. The audiance seem to be celebrities. I bet they paid a lot of money for the privilage. 8 out of 10.
