Monty Python: The Meaning of Live
Directed by
Roger Graef, James Rogan

UK / 2014 / 92

Screening Times and Venues:

LIMITED TICKETS are available at ROSENDALE THEATRE for the Rosendale screening.

In 1969, six men joined forces to create an absurd surrealist comedy group that would one day become one of the most notable icons of the comedy world. Now, nearly 35 years later, these illustrious Monty Python players have reunited to bring their unique brand of silliness back to their massive fan base. Focusing on their sold-out, ten-night run at The O2 Arena in London, Monty Python: The Meaning of Live presents a behind-the-scenes look at Monty Pythons largest show ever. Filled with heartfelt interviews and insights, as well as a nostalgic look back at old sketches, this historic documentary shows the always hilarious, always hard-working Pythons in a brand new light. Artfully balancing stage performance, personal memories, and a view of who these men are today, this film is sure to have you laughing in your seat. A treat for any fan of this brilliant, one-of-a-kind comedy group and an education for anyone who missed them back in the day.
