"What could be finer at the end of a long life in comedy, than a chance to reunite with old pals and say goodbye to all our fans in one final mad musical show," said
Monty Python rightfully hold a place among the world's finest comedians, influencing generations and revolutionizing comedy on their way to greatness. Monty Python first hit U.K. TV screens with "Monty Python's Flying Circus," which saw 45 episodes broadcast over four BBC series between 1969 and 1974. The Pythons were an instant success and became the face of British comedy. They went on to achieve overwhelming international acclaim with the huge success of films such as "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" in 1975, "Life of Brian" in 1979 and their final film, "The Meaning of Life" in 1983.
"Monty Python fans won't want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see this iconic comedy troupe in their only onstage reunion," said
