  • Pythons unite (no S.O.A.P)

    The five surviving members of Britain's famed Monty Python comedy troupe are to reunite for a 40th anniversary bash in New York, where they will be presented with a BAFTA Special Award.

    The Monty Python team, which shot to international fame in the late 1960s and 1970s with their surreal and satirical humour, will receive the award on October 15, said the British Academy of Film and Television Arts on Wednesday.
    The gong marks their outstanding contribution to film and television.

    The five - John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin - are all due to attend. The sixth Python, Graham Chapman, died in 1989.
    ``I believe these trinkets are more important than people think,'' Cleese said.

    The event would be co-hosted by BAFTA and the Independent Film Channel to mark the 40 years since the sketch show Monty Python's Flying Circus was first broadcast on October 5, 1969.

    ``We're absolutely delighted to co-host this event celebrating the 40th anniversary of the incomparable Monty Python,'' said BAFTA chairman David Parfitt.

    ``It promises to be a rare and memorable occasion bringing the hugely talented Monty Python team together again and we feel that the Special Award is a fitting tribute to this much-loved and singularly British institution.''

    BAFTA last honoured the Monty Python team in 1987 when they were presented with the Michael Balcon Award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema.

    Previous Special Award recipients include Audrey Hepburn, Judi Dench, Richard Attenborough, Billy Connolly, Maggie Smith, Julie Walters and James bond producers EON.

      I think he means Simple Object Access Protocol, such that there will be no Web Service access to the event.

        As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

          I have been forced to watch a hell of a lot of monty python comedy, including spamalot, it has to be some of the most fucking dull, pea-brain comedy I have ever been forced to endure. I HOPE one of them dies the night before and that the rest get dementure and can't create another pile of crap that they call comedy.

              So your not really a big fan then?

              Faulty Towers is the only funny thing to come out of the Monty Python bunch, that and the quest for the holy grail.

                No. I take the opposing view because I have seen more than enough of it to make a qualified judgement, and it is a pile of horse shit. I accept that the majority of people in this world find it funny, I can respect that, but I will make it clear that there are people that think they are fucking retards. The only british comedy I will ever acknowledge are the tv series Faulty Towers(which is believe is monty python) and are you being served, the rest is unbearable.

                Does anyone else agree with me?

                  I believed you, until you mentioned are you being served.

                  Rule 1 is never overdo the troll, you need to let people think you may be serious.

                        Side question: why would someone get on a plane run by the "Snakes on a Plane" company and NOT expect to find snakes on said plane?

                              Cleese needs the money now. Loved his quote of "imagine what she'd have got if she'd contributed something to the relationship"
                              "Speed Kills". The stupid person's answer to a complex problem.
