A collection of skits that made the Python troup famous, performed live at the Hollywood Bowl. Included are the singing philosophers, lumberjacks, the pope, and a suspiciously-male looking seabird vendor.Written by

This marks the last time The Ministry of Silly Walks sketch was performed by the troupe. John Cleese had a hip and knee replacement in 2010, thus making Cleese unable to perform the fan favorite Silly Walks anymore. See more »
During the Bishop on the Landing Skit, a number of the actors could barely keep a straight face, and also when the church police came onstage and everyone jumped over, Terry Jones's wig flew completely off his head, forcing the other actors to slowly close ranks to allow him to replace his wig without anyone seeing.

First Barber, Second Barber, Third Barber, Fourth Barber:
Sit on my face and tell me that you love me, I'll sit on your face and tell you I love you too, I love to hear you oralise, when I'm between your thighs you blow me away. Sit on my face and let my lips embrace you, I'll sit on your face and then I'll love you truly, life can be fine if we both 69, if we sit on our faces in all sorts of places and play till we're blown away.

Live & raw, a unique experience for any Python-fan.
First of all; it's just amazing seeing the legendary Pythons performing the most popular sketches live, in front of a huge audience, similar to a music concert. The crowd is so into it, they seem to know the lines by heart. Still, they just love it and it makes for a very special event with a fantastic atmosphere.
My favourite sketch (and it IS hard to pick just one!) is the "Church Police" sketch. Why? Because the otherwise super-professional Pythons can't keep from laughing themselves as things go slightly wrong. Just look when Terry Jones' wig comes right off as he jumps... They crack up. I have never seen that happen before, and every time I see it I laugh so hard it hurts.
If you have never seen the TV-series before, this may not seem as all that much of a great movie. But being an almost fanatical fan of the Pythons, seeing these sketches live is a wholly enjoyable experience.
The only sad thing is that most of us never attended the bloody thing. Nonetheless, this is a must see.
