You can expect a lttle comedy, a lot of pathos, a lot of music and a tiny bit of ancient sex… and maybe some cross dressing. -Monty Python.
The historic last night of the Monty Python Live (mostly) show from London’s The 02 concert arena is to be broadcast in cinemas across Australia from August 6 with limited Encore Screenings to follow. Monty Python rightfully hold a place amongst the world’s finest ever comedians, influencing a generation and revolutionising comedy on their way to greatness. There was huge demand for tickets for the first live performances at the O2 with tickets selling out in under a minute.

Recently it was announced that the final night of their London performances will be the Pythons last ever live performance together.
The live show will be directed by Aubrey Powell and produced by Fiz Oliver.Australian fans have the opportunity of joining in on one of the most anticipated live events ever captured in HD.
