best of Python with a hint of smoke

The legendary troupe performs in the legendary venue. It's got many of their best skits including excerpts from their TV show. Their fans are having loads of fun and enjoying the "Atmosphere". This was my first exposure to Monty Python back in the day. The best was that this was all new to me. I didn't see the TV show. This is laugh after laugh after laugh which the TV show is not always. The TV show is hit and miss like a modern day SNL but edgier. It's also obvious that the performers are having fun like Cleese going into the crowd selling Albatross and telling the crowd that they can't smoke that. It's got great energy and endless fun. I recently watched it again on Netflix and it holds up. Other than a few deliberate racist jokes, it's as good as ever. As an adult, I get fresh eyes to see some of the jokes. Quite frankly, I'd show this first to any newbie Python virgins.

Inevitably uneven, but in its best moments brilliant

I consider the Pythons to be one of the best comedy groups that ever appeared on the screen, perhaps even THE best (it's either them or the Marx Brothers). If you agree even partially, you should not miss "Live at the Hollywood Bowl". Irreverence and surrealism in abundance - as you would expect from the Python guys at their best. Sure, devoted fans have probably seen many of these sketches before, but that won't stop them from enjoying them again - it certainly didn't stop the live audience at the time. There are some slow spots and the picture quality is fairly poor (as the show was videotaped and then transferred to film),but how can you say anything bad about a film that has you crying from too much laughter at least twice? ("What? Only one Christ?") (***)

Live & raw, a unique experience for any Python-fan.

First of all; it's just amazing seeing the legendary Pythons performing the most popular sketches live, in front of a huge audience, similar to a music concert. The crowd is so into it, they seem to know the lines by heart. Still, they just love it and it makes for a very special event with a fantastic atmosphere.

My favourite sketch (and it IS hard to pick just one!) is the "Church Police" sketch. Why? Because the otherwise super-professional Pythons can't keep from laughing themselves as things go slightly wrong. Just look when Terry Jones' wig comes right off as he jumps... They crack up. I have never seen that happen before, and every time I see it I laugh so hard it hurts.

If you have never seen the TV-series before, this may not seem as all that much of a great movie. But being an almost fanatical fan of the Pythons, seeing these sketches live is a wholly enjoyable experience.

The only sad thing is that most of us never attended the bloody thing. Nonetheless, this is a must see.
