Monty Python almost-reunion coming to U.S. cinemas

For Monty Python fans: In case you couldn’t get tickets (not to mention plane reservations) to the upcoming “Monty Python Live (mostly)” show in London’s O2 Arena this July, there’s hope. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Picturehouse Entertainment will distribute a live broadcast show in cinemas around the world, including in the U.S. The show, which unites the five surviving members of the legendary comedy troupe (sixth member Graham Chapman died in 1989), is the first live performance of the group since their 1980 Hollywood Bowl appearance, and sold out the O2 Arena instantly (to be specific, in 43.5 seconds). It’s expected to include many of the troupe’s most famous sketches. In a statement, the Pythons (who have a combined age of “just 357), said:

“Thanks to the wonderful invention of moving pictures, The Last Night of Monty Python is coming to a cinema near you. Join the crowd live from London’s O2 in a final weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous, farewell to the five remaining Pythons as they head for The Old Jokes Home ….on the big screen, in HD. ”

Sounds like an appropriate time for a Silly Walk, no?
