As “London Evening Standard” informs Monty Python’s Flying Circus will perform “a historic reunion” at O2 Arena, in Jul 1-5 & 15-20, but doubts as well if they will still be hysterically funny after all these years?
“Due to overwhelming popular demand, the Pythons have added a further five shows to the Monty Python Live (mostly) run at the The O2 arena, on 15, 16, 18, 19, 20 July 2014.” Tickets were on-sale at 10am on Friday 29 November.

“Tickets for the first reunion performance on 1 July sold out in a record 43.5 seconds. A further four extra dates (2 – 5 July) went on sale immediately and sold out soon afterwards.”

Monty Python (sometimes known as The Pythons) are a British surreal comedy group that created Monty Python’s Flying Circus, a British television comedy sketch show that first aired on the BBC on 5 October 1969. Forty-five episodes were made over four series. The Python phenomenon developed from the television series into something larger in scope and impact, spawning touring stage shows, films, numerous albums, several books and a stage musical as well as launching the members to individual stardom. The group’s influence on comedy has been compared to The Beatles’ influence on music

Monty Python members, mostly philosophers,  have reunited to voice a 3D animated film based on the memoirs of the late Graham Chapman. The crew is famous for the cult TV series Monty Python’s Flying Circus (UK, 1969) and the team also brought films including Holy Grail and Life of Brian to the big screen.

A Liar’s Autobiography will feature recordings that Chapman, who died in 1989 aged 48, made of his 1980 book. John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones have all signed up while Eric Idle is not involved. The film is due out in spring next year.
