  • Masters of Their Craft at Work Before a Great Audience
    July 24, 2011

    Talk about the perfect relationship between a comedy troupe at the top of their game and an audience that's precisely in-tune with them. The Pythons didn't have a long window of acceptance in the States, but they made the most of it with performances like this one. Uproariously funny, and even though I knew which skits were coming up just by the slightest bits of foreshadowing (and could telegraph them word for word in some cases) I was still laughing until it hurt. I think most of the California crowd was in pretty much the same place that night. An unbelievable performance that makes me really sad I never had a chance to see the Pythons live.
