Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl: The Comedy Classic

Yesterday was the 42nd anniversary of the first broadcast of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. The original BBC show aired for only five years, but its impact on popular culture has been lasting. To celebrate, we bring you the 1982 film, Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl. The image quality isn’t the best here, but the humor shines through. The movie combines live sketches, filmed in 1980, with excerpts from a two-part 1972 German television special, Monty Python’s Fliegender Zirkus. Highlights include: “The Ministry of Silly Walks,” “Nudge Nudge,” “The Lumberjack Song,” “Silly Olympics” (featuring the “100 Yards For People With No Sense Of Direction” and the “200-Meter Freestyle For Non-Swimmers”) as well as one of our favorites, “The Philosophers’ Football Match.” Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl has been added to our growing collection of Free Movies Online.
