Monty Python rightfully hold a place amongst the world’s finest ever comedians, influencing a generation and revolutionizing comedy on their way to greatness. There was huge demand for tickets for the first live performances at the O2 on stage by the stars of Monty Python since performing at the Hollywood Bowl on September 15, 1980 and 40 years after they last appeared on stage in the UK at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. At a combined age of just 357, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will once again take to the stage and perform some of Monty Python’s greatest hits with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists.
“Thanks to the wonderful invention of moving pictures, The Last Night of Monty Python is coming to a cinema near you. Get your knotted handkerchiefs out and warm your brains one last time at any one of 450 cinemas across the UK, and 1500 across the world. Join the crowd live from London’s O2 in a final weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous, farewell to the five remaining Pythons as they head for The Old Jokes Home ….on the big screen, in HD, ” said the Pythons.
The Paramount Theatre Box Office is open Thursday and Friday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and from noon through curtain time on all show days.
