Monty Python Viewer Choice Weekend
If you have missed out on exactly whom Monty Python is, let me give you the nut shell version. It is a group of British actors/comedy troupe who stared in the famous Monty Python Flying Circus on BBC during 1969 to 1974. It consists of Graham Chapman (died in 1989 of cancer), John Cleese (voice of the King in Shrek), Terry Gilliam(Tideland), Eric Idle (Spamalot), Terry Jones (Medieval Lives a mini series in the UK) and Michael Palin (Himalaya a TV series in the UK).
Monty Python stared together in the movie: Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) and the Life of Brian (1979)
The latest tribute to Monty Python is the hit Broadway show SPAMALOT staring David Hyde Pierce (Fraiser), Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Hank Azaria (The Simpsons). It is a musical version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail directed by Mike Nichols (Angels in America). It has a new music score written by Eric Idle and John Du Prez (Teenage Mutant Turtles). SPAMALOT has been nominated for 14 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
So if you love Monty Python, tune into the BBC America and watch the Viewers Choice Weekend, if you can’t catch it then there’s always setting your VCR or DVR to record. BBC America does show Monty Python regularly so you can catch it other times too. Enjoy Monty Python and laugh a little or a lot.
