One of Britain's most treasured comedic talents Terry Jones passed away at the age of 77 on Wednesday. With a career spanning six decades, the actor, director, and writer is best known for his time as a member of the popular and influential comedy troupe Monty Python. During Monty Python's Flying Circus' run on the […]
On both a personal and professional level, it was kinda' weird that this would hit the same week that I officially passed the 5000 article mark at Bleeding Cool. See, Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote was the subject of the very first article I ever wrote – it was actually my test […]
We lost two giants of British Culture this week, and Jonathan Miller definitely fit that title. His family announced that he was suffering from Alzheimer's Disease and passed away at his home in London. He was 85 years old. British Comedy would not have been the same without Miller, yet younger people don't really know […]
If any troupe has stood the test of time, it's British comedy team Monty Python. The stories and sketches Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam have heavily influenced generaations. Every 10 years, Monty Python reunites to tell and retell their stories about pitching the idea to the BBC, […]
For the 50th anniversary of Monty Python's Flying Circus' first broadcast, on BBC 1, Michael Palin has narrated and constructed a series of shws for BBC Radio 4, Monty Python at 50: The Self-Abasement Tapes, broadcasting sketches that never made it to air, or in very limited capacities, such as advertising for the show and […]
Okay so, maybe comparing one of these four new Hellboy images to comedy classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail isn't fair, it sure is accurate? We mean, just LOOK at this shot of Alestair Petrie and David Harbour. Doesn't Petrie look JUST LIKE a mashup of Sir Bedivere and one of the Knights Who […]
Friends! Romans! Rapscallions! Monty Python's Life of Brian makes a triumphant limited resurrection to theaters for the 40th anniversary of its release. Trafalgar Releasing, who took over rights of the film in 2018, plans a 400-screen release spanning across the UK, US, Australia, Canada, Germany and Scandinavia, according to Variety. Life of Brian, the second […]
Yes yes, we can now officially say that Michael Palin will be an *actual* Knight who says Ni. Palin becomes the first member of the British comedy troupe Monty Python to receive the honor of (substantive rather than honorary) Knighthood from Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during the New Years Honors investitures. Of the honor, […]
Yes, we know, the movie adaptation of the Monty Python musical Spamalot is *actually* Monty Python And The Holy Grail but, this is about a film version of the Broadway musical. Perhaps you'll recall the CLASSIC (FIGHT ME) 1975 film from the British comedy troupe about the trials and tribulations of Arthur King of the Britons (Graham Chapman) […]
If you currently don't have enough Monty Python in your life, never fear! Netflix has got you covered, apparently. The streaming service giant has acquired the entire Python catalogue of films, Flying Circus episodes, and various live performances and will be launching them sometime later this year. The UK and Canada Netflix subscribers will actually get […]
The first panel of SDCC 2017 for me was Dinosaurs, Monsters, Movies, and The Blues: Worlds of William Stout, and for my taste it couldn't have been a better first panel. This is William Stout's 48th San Diego Comic Con, which means he has been to every single one and whether you know it or […]
In a vintage Live Talks Los Angeles video, Monty Python veterans Eric Idle and John Cleese discuss some of their days in Cambridge, the odd circumstances around which they and their Python cohorts received their first thirteen-episode series, and a number of other things. At the time of the recording, Cleese had just published his […]
From Game Of Thrones Season 6 Episode 1. And from Monty Python's Flying Circus Series 2 Episode 2. It's also a bit "What have the Romans ever done for us" too?
The trailer for Absolutely Anything has hit and the film features Simon Pegg who is given the power to do anything he wishes by a group of aliens to test if humanity is worth saving or destroying. The aliens are voiced by Monty Python and Robin Williams provided the voice for Dennis the Dog. Absolutely […]
By Jeb D. When it was announced earlier this year that there would be a live theatrical broadcast of the final performance of the Monty Python "farewell" shows from London's O2 arena, people that know me assumed I'd be first in line for tickets. My siblings and I were what you might call "first generation" […]
The front page for British cheap quality newspaper, i, was a little unfortunate earlier this week.
Sit On My Face it ain't.
The Monty Python-tinged voice ensemble includes John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin.
You simply cannot have missed the news that Monty Python are reuniting for a live show next Summer, but there's more.
