HOW CAN IT BE THAT ALL SIX MEMBERS OF MONTE PYTHON,
the British comedy troupe, yes!! all six members of the original group, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Graham Chapman, will be present in New York in the fall to celebrate their 40th Anniversary? Graham Chapman, who died in 1989, will somehow be present. If you doubt it, well, that's your problem. I personally am cheering on a sort of ghostly presence, (not a surprise!), maybe carrying a rather dead parrot.
I am giddy with anticipation of the event, to be held on Oct.15, at the Ziegfeld Theater. The reunion will feature a screening, announced by the Independent Film Channel (IFC), of the documentary,"Monte Python: Almost The Truth, (The Lawyers Cut)." The surviving members, (hmm), will take part in a Q&A session and receive an award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
We'll also be able to catch a six hour TV version of the documentary, which will have its premiere on IFC on Oct.18
Tickets anyone? Or will you catch it on TV? I'll have to do both, because I'm already involved in my own laugh fest!!
