“We are now the Knights who say… “Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-PTANG. Zoom-Boing. Z’nourrwringmm.”

One of my favorite scenes from “Monty Python and The Holy Grail”

At some point in your life, you have peaked an interest in Monty Python.  Whether it be now from this article or from watching “Flying Circus” or perhaps, a friend of yours “MADE” you sit down and watch the ‘Holy Grail”. However you were introduced, it is the best, most awesomest thing that has ever happened to you.

Then, you find out that Monty Python is no more.  The day you found out is the day that still haunts you.

That sad day is no more!

For worldwide fans of the bizarre and beloved comedy group, the chance to see Monty Python perform one last time will be as easy as going to the cinema

Turns out, the dream lives on: the comedy group’s final show on July 20 will be broadcast simultaneously to 450 movie theaters in the UK and another 1,500 around the world, reports TheGuardian. Fans in the U.S., Australia, Sweden, Russia, Poland and more will all get a chance to see the remaining Pythons perform together for the last time.

Tickets for the live event sold out in a record breaking 43 seconds, but perhaps Las Vegas will get lucky and have it arrive in one of our prestigious theater’s.  One can only dream….

The group last performed all together – along with their sixth original member, Graham Chapman, who died in 1989 – at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles in 1980.
