Monty Python Live must have been such a treat to those lucky people you see at the beginning of the show, anxiously entering the Hollywood Bowl. It is certainly a treat for anyone who watches this DVD at home. The boys revive their classic sketches, from the Lumberjack Song to Sit on My Face to Crunchy Frog, as only they can.
In Disc One of this 2 DVD set, the boys are in perfect form, and the live element to this show makes it even more entertaining. They feed off the audience's reactions, and the audience (and you) find themselves reciting every line along with the cast. It is a really fun time!
The Aspen special also included on the first DVD is a tribute to the Monty Python cast as significant contributors to the world of comedy. Even the late Graham Chapman makes an appearance...in a funny fake urn...and the rest of the guys have a ball reminiscing about old times and old sketches, yukking it up with the host and the audience.
The second DVD includes "20 Years of Python, a compilation special hosted briefly by Steve Martin. It features clips from all of the most famous sketches from the TV series. The second DVD also features a special episode written specially for German/Austrian audiences ("Fliegander Zirkus").
So, if you love Monty Python, if you love comedy, and/or if you're German or Austrian, buy this DVD! You will not regret it!
