35 years ago today…Monty Python’s concert at the The Royal Theatre in Drury Lane (best known at the home of the muffin man) was recorded for their 1974 Live at Drury Lane album. To celebrate this moment in Monty Python history, we feature nothing from this recording in the first episode of the Gazillionth (or so) Monty Python Podcast hosted by MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann.
Instead, you will hear clips of classic routines and songs recorded for some of their other classic albums, as well as comments from cast members Terry Jones and Eric Idle and MP historian Kim Howard Johnson about how politics, history and the news inspired their work.
In other Python news, a charity screening of Life of Brian is set for this Sat March 28 in the Welsh village of Aberystwyth, where the fim was banned in 1979. Terry Jones and Michael Palin will appear, but not Eric Idle, most likely due to a previously scheduled brunch the next morning to celebrate his 66th birthday.
