Global finale for Monty Python show

The Pythons have said this run of shows is their last

Legendary comedy troupe Monty Python is performing the last of its farewell shows on Sunday night, on stage at London’s O2 Arena and also at more than 2,000 cinemas around the world.

It is the last show in a run of 10 for John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Terry Jones.

Comic stars including David Walliams, Steve Coogan, Eddie Izzard and Mike Myers are expected to attend.

Classic sketches performed have included The Lumberjack Song.

The final performance will also be broadcast live on UK television on channel Gold.

The Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five To Go shows have seen the surviving stars performing live together for the first time in 30 years.

The show ends with a singalong of Always Look On the Bright Side of Life.

The show features a number of well-known sketches

The Pythons also perform several songs

Famous sketches in the reunion show include the fish-slapping sketch and special applause has come from audiences for archive footage of Graham Chapman, who died of cancer in 1989.

The reunion also featured a cameo appearance from Stephen Fry, who took part in a sketch about a game show host blackmailing misbehaving celebrities.

Professor Brian Cox and Stephen Hawking featured elsewhere in the performance.

The shows have had mixed reviews. The Express called the show “comedy history in the making“, giving it five stars but the Independent gave the “desperately lazy production” two stars.

Monty Python’s Flying Circus was made for TV between 1969 and 1974. The group also made several films including Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Monty Python’s Life of Brian.
