Thread: Monty Python Show at Coachella?

  1. #1

    Default Monty Python Show at Coachella?

    Would a Monty Python "concert/show" at Coachella 2014 work? It certainly would be different/innovative! No spam! :<P

    Could British comedy group Monty Python be reuniting? It's starting to sound like it.


    A spokesperson for the group told The Independent that the Pythons will be "unveiling their plans to work together again" at a Thursday press conference in London, but no other details were available yet.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, invitations to the conference were sent to reporters Tuesday: "John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin invite you to join them," said the invitation, listing the group's members. (Graham Chapman, who was also in Python, died in 1989.)

    Python member Idle has been tweeting hints for a few days now, with one on Tuesday morning pointing to the press conference specifically.

    Python meeting this morning. Can't wait. Press Conference Thursday will apparently be live on Sky News. I'll get you the online URL.

    — Eric Idle (@EricIdle) November 19, 2013
    And fellow member Jones told the BBC, "We're getting together and putting on a show — it's real. I'm quite excited about it. I hope it makes us a lot of money. I hope to be able to pay off my mortgage!"

    A reunion would mark the team's first project together in 30 years.

    How does any of this make sense? I can understand a Monty Python fan wanting to see a live (Graham Chapman-less) performance in 2013. Maybe. But how does any of it make sense in the context of Coachella?

    Well, having Monty Python at Coachella would certainly be different, like I said. Has Coachella ever had a comedian or a comedy troupe perform? I guess you could count Henry Rollins; he was pretty funny a few years back. Or John Waters. Might be nice to shake Coachella up a bit. Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam

    Murphy Brown is going into syndication so perhaps there could be a tent that airs some episodes.

    I believe Stephen King's newest novel, Doctor Sleep may be a subheadliner.

    And yeah, if John Waters can get a spot, it's not that far from reasonable. Very unlikely, but more fitting with Coachella's sensibility than people wishing for Third Eye Blind or whatever.

    At Festival Supreme Eric Idle and Jeff B Davis did a bunch singing, it could be a song/comedy show, not sure Monty Python but they could be doing something similar

    Comedians of Comedy (Jasper Redd/Brent Weinbach/Howard Kremer/Aziz Ansari/Hard'n'Phirm/Maria Bamford/Zach Galifianakis/Brian Posehn/Patton Oswalt) performed in the Gobi Tent in 2007. That's the only one I can remember.

    I saw Eric Idle at Festival Supreme and he brought out Billy Idol, it was pretty cool. It was definitely fun, especially for someone who enjoys Monty Python. I think on a smaller stage he would do just as well as some of the small name bands, and probably be a lot more entertaining to watch.

    If they booked John Waters, Python (if available) is feasible. They could pull off a day slot easy and we would love them for it.

    I just bought Pee Wee Herman tickets for a show in Vancouver a couple weeks before Coachella.

    Monty Python is now up to 15 arena shows in London. it's not playing a festival in desert.

    i think python wouldn't really work. however i do like the idea of having one wildcard spoken word type thing each year, or maybe every other year. sean penn, john waters, henry rollins, sly stone & his office chair, they were all interesting and weird enough in their own way
