Graham Chapman's anecdotes 30 years later
11 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

When Graham Chapman toured colleges in 1988 he did not have much longer to live: he would die of cancer shortly after. Almost 30 years later some guy tracks down the tapes made on one or two of these tours and makes a DVD out of it.

Almost everything on this DVD was already in audio on the CD "a sixpack of lies". The videos of the same show are of very poor quality. If you already have the CD, don't buy this.

Very interesting for a few fanatic people. Though it has little meaning for the average viewer, if you are a fan of Monty Python and / or Graham Chapman, it is a must. His anecdotes concern Monty python as well as the dangerous sports club and Keith Moon (from the band "The Who").

It is a pity that more then 25 years after his death, we have only this one sloppy DVD. Surely the pilot for the never-produced series "Jake's Journey" would also have made an interesting item.
