From the Creators of Spamalot Comes the Historic One-Night Only Live Show!

Not the Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy) delivers the magic of a historic performance by members of the Monty Python troupe celebrating their 40th Anniversary with a song oratorio inspired by the cult film The Life of Brian at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The performance features a rare on-stage reunion of Pythons Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, and Terry Gilliam.

In 1979, Monty Python’s Life of Brian turned the Biblical epic on its head. Now, the creators of Spamalot Eric Idle & John Du Prez turn classical music on its ear!

Prepare for Not the Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy), the comedic masterpiece that combines all of the unforgettable humor of the Python’s most celebrated film with the overblown grandeur of operatic solists, full symphony orchestra and chorus.

Filmed live on October 23, 2009, the performance stars Eric Idle with special appearances by original Python troupe members, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, and Terry Gilliam.

Brand new special features include three behind-the-stage featurettes and 6 sing-a-long songs, along with BD-Live functionality on the Blu-ray Disc version.
