ERIC IDLE TO ATTEND MAY 29 MONTY PYTHON SCREENING
AT L.A.'S MUSEUM OF TELEVISION & RADIO
Eric Idle passed along some info about an event this month at the Museum of Television & Radio in case any were interested in attending. Eric will be there to introduce screenings of some rare material and will take questions from the audience.
The Museum of Television & Radio runs about ten to twelve Members-Only events each year. This month's event is a Curator's Pick entitled Monty Python, Shedding Skins - Before and After the Flying Circus.
The one-time-only event offers a rare look at the Pythons' work prior to the Flying Circus and documents the troupe's candid assessments of their group dynamic and comic legacy after the heyday of the series. The sophisticated, offbeat British children's series Do Not Adjust Your Set featured the work of future Monty Python's Flying Circus castmates Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam. The BBC documentary The Pythons takes the audience behind the scenes of the production of the troupe's film The Life of Brian, produced well after the end of the television series.
