Celebrating the films of iconic British comedy troupe Monty Python, this program brings together the silver screen collaborations of Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam.
After beginning their careers writing and acting for different comedy television and radio programs, the group joined together to create the BBC TV comedy program ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’. This absurdist and wildly inventive sketch show became of the most influential television comedies of all time, mixing broad slapstick with unforgettable surrealism.
The success of their program led to their theatrically released films, including the re-filmed revitalisations of their most beloved sketches in And Now For Something Completely Different 1972, the class spoof of medieval epics Monty Python and the Holy Grail 1975, the ribald religious parody Life of Brian 1979, and the bawdy musical-comedy Meaning of Life 1982.
Full program and screening information to be announced soon.
