    Lots of talk about Monty Python with the live shows being on, as someone who has been watching them from a early age got to say the best sketches are: -

    1, SPAM - "...or lobster thermidor a crevette with a mornay sauce served in a provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam"

    2, Dennis Moore - "hand over your lumpins"

    3, Lumberjack song!

    I see they've also released an album of their songs, how long before the films get remastered and re released

    Always loved the films, was never that keen on the TV shows TBH.

    Michael Palin & John Cleese in the "Biggus Dickus" part of Holy Grail always makes me laugh the most. Ridiculous, but genius.

    The Black Knight is another personal favourite.

    The Life of Brian movie is in my opinion the best thing they ever did. I still LMAO whenever i watch it.
    Going back to the current live shows.........very sad to see a bunch of old geezers trying to recreate the past. It just smacks of money making for the sake of it. John Cleese...move on from your failed marriages please.

    Life of Brian is by far the best of them IMO.

    However, there are some seriously hilarious moments in "The Meaning of LIfe"

    I bought my African Grey the Life of Brian video and now she sings and whistles always look on the bright side of life. More in tune than me!

    I didn't enjoy the live show, it was the Eric Idle show, you could see John Cleese counting the money in his head and wishing he was somewhere else.

    I also love Terry Gilliam´s "Brazil" and "The Fisher King" - two really fantastic films ...
