The +Tribeca Film Festival
held a screening last night to honor the 40th anniversary of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I got to watch Holy Grail in a beautiful theater, followed by a Q&A with the 5 surviving Pythons!!
Watching an awesome movie with a ton of fans was a huge blast - but the real highlight was obviously the Q&A. It turns out that John Oliver was the host, which was pretty awesome!
Because this is Monty Python you're talking about, the panel quickly degenerated into "Let's troll John Oliver". John Cleese at one point walked off stage and started doing shadow puppets. The Pythons pulled their chairs into a circle around Oliver, or turned backwards in their seats.
And then, after leaving the stage to thunderous applause, the final slide projected on screen - "Piss Off". How very Pythonesque. :-)
