Monty Python Is “Not The Messiah”

pythons_1486611cEric Idle, of Monty Python fame (and pictured here with Python), has written a cheeky piece about his upcoming gig: ‘”Not The Messiah, (He’s a Very Naughty Boy)” at the Royal Albert Hall in London on October 23, where I am appearing with my “Spamalot” co-creator John Du Prez, who will be conducting 260 musicians (the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Chorus, and pipers from the Royal Scots Guards), as well as Michael Palin in full drag, Terry Jones as a Welsh miner, and Terry Gilliam as a Mexican.’ Idle continues: ‘Let me say simply that if you are going to roll around in pig shit in drag on top of the Yorkshire moors, or gallop around Scotland on imaginary horses in soggy woolen armour, or intend to be crucified for three days in Tunisia, then these are the finest bunch of chaps you could ever wish to roll, ride or be crucified with.’
