Monty Python

We're thrilled to announce that we will be broadcasting the final-ever performance of the Monty Python Live (Mostly) stage show directly from The O2 on Sunday 20th July 2014.

The ground-breaking event will begin with a live back stage programme and will culminate with the Python’s final-ever stage show.

Richard Watsham, UKTV Director of Commissioning said, “It’s a huge step in Gold’s evolution to be part of such a significant national event and to be broadcasting it live so that everyone can be there. Monty Python is arguably the most influential comedy group the country has ever known and it’s a matter of great pride that they’ve trusted us with celebrating their very last night together.”

Eric Idle, on behalf of The Pythons said: "What could be finer at the end of a long life in comedy, than a chance to reunite with old pals and say goodbye to all our fans in one final mad musical show. We are very excited that not only do we get the chance to screw up on stage, we get a chance to screw up live on TV too."

Monty Python Live (Mostly) sees the five stars reunited on stage for the first time in the UK in over 40 years.

Watch it exclusively on Sunday 20th July on Gold
