I was apprehensive about the show I actually enjoyed it !.Emerging from the doors of a giant
Victorian cut-out theatre, the five Pythons - Gilliam, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle and
Terry Jones entered to a roar of approval from the packed O2.The Lumberjack Song got the
biggest applause of the first half but the second half contained the vintage sketches,The
Albatross sketch, Nudge Nudge, Wink Wink,The Spanish Inquisition which I did expect ! and
The Dead Parrot Sketch - during which Palin and Cleese collapse into giggles which I think
was pre scripted.
Some of the funniest moments are seeing the ageing Pythons dressed as women and free
from political correctness.In between sketches there are clips from the television series as the
live action, especially those featuring the late Graham Chapman.And Terry Gilliam's surreal
graphics which are still very entertaining.Dressed up with big dance numbers it becomes a bit
of a sing along which as we all know is Idle's speciality.
What have The Pythons ever done for us? Well in most cases still making people laugh
