The whole team's final, and most famous, stage appearance at the Hollywood Bowl in 1980. Includes material from the TV show as well as from their 'Contractual Obligation Album'.
Released for the first time on DVD, Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl presents some of the Python lads' finest, funniest (and foulest) work. Cut from their four night stand at the Hollywood Bowl in 1980, this DVD is jam-packed with sketches, songs and a host of their finest gags from their TV series.
Numbers include the sexually confused lumberjack, the Ministry of Silly Walks, the Argument Clinic and the exploding balladeer. Some of the group's funnier short-film pieces are featured as well, including the International Philosophy Match (Germany vs. Greece) and Terry Gilliam's animated pieces. Monty Python aficionados will enjoy seeing the lads do their thing for a live crowd, and there's a fantastic rapport with the audience. The sketches are looser and less hermetic than those in the Monty Python TV shows or films. Aside from the unusual setting, there's nothing particularly revelatory about Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl... But for Python fans and fanatics--and they are legion--this won't matter a jot. --Nick Poppy

A great mix of the old/familiar with some new stuff. As has been stated elsewhere, the live performance enables some bad language / sexual innuendo that wouldn't be possible on TV, but this is never done just for its own sake - it always enhances the humour.
I didn't know Americans loved Monty P this much, but the audience at the Hollywood Bowl (or, as Michael Palin called it, "the Ronald Reagan Memorial Bowl") seemed to laugh at all the same things as I did.
Live at the Hollywood Bowl seems to be a forgotten masterpiece. A collection of brilliant songs include Sit on my Face, I've Got Two Legs and the Antiracist Song. (and obviously The Lumberjack Song, but that goes without saying). There is also a very clever number called the Philosopher's Song as well as two numbers from Neil Innes.
One criticism is that a couple of times I thought the language went a bit too far into 'tasteless'. This, however, is nick-picking... or is it nit-picking?
I suppose there's only one more thing to say - BUY IT!!!!
This was the guys at their best live in America and plus it has the "Nudge Nudge" sketch which was a firm favorite of Elvis himself.
Now stop reading this and order it at once....
