Storyline

Not The Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy) is a comic oratorio based on Monty Python's Life of Brian, which retells the tragic tale of Mandy, impregnated by a Roman soldier, giving birth to Brian, a reluctant revolutionary of the People's Front of Judea who falls in love with Judith, gets mistaken for a Messiah and is arrested by the Romans and sentenced to be crucified. It ranges in reference from Handel, through a naughty Mozart duet, to the Festival of Nine Carols, Bob Dylan, and the classic finale "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life". Written by Anonymous

Nothing prepared me for this show, i have been a python fan for as long as i can remember. On arrival to the Albert hall casually waiting to go in Eric idle walks passed and gives me a hug to my amazement. Back to the show, musically amazing the feeling when liberty bell bellowed through the hall from a 200 piece orchestra it brought a tear to my eye. The show was amazing, scripted perfectly with new songs and jokes but still keeping faith with the life of Brian. Cameos from the pythons make it almost the full Monty and the jokes and banter still there after 400 years. The show is amazing and really worth watching, i was honoured to be there live but even watching back on DVD its still amazing. Loved every minute of it and shows that Monty Python is still as fresh as ever
