Monty Python – Live At Aspen – 1998
In 2014 they announced their final show. For this post we go back to 1998 and what was billed as the last reunion.
It’s 1998 and the Pythons re-unite along with a special urn for one last time ?
A reunion show featuring the five surviving members of Monty Python: John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin. Graham Chapman was also allegedly in attendance as his “ashes” were brought out in an urn.
In the show the Pythons look back at their work and receive an American Film Industry award. It also featured some memorable moments when Gilliam ‘accidentally’ kicked over the urn, which Eric Idle said was their biggest audience laugh ever. It was hosted by Robert Klein and featured a cameo by Eddie Izzard.
Channel: HBO (it was screened in the USA)
Original Transmission Date: 21st March 1998
