Terry Gilliam Isn't Happy About Monty Python's Reunion
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.17.2014



In an interview with The Evening Standard, Terry Gilliam said that he thinks Monty Python has sold out by getting back together for a series of reunion shows at the O2 Arena in London this July. Here are highlights:

On not rehearsing until a week before the show: "We know it. We've done it. There's only a little bit of me in it anyway, which obviously isn't fair... We have had a read-through and I tell you Mike Palin is the funniest Python by far; just a genius. Why he wastes his time on these boring travel shows I have no idea."

On feeling that the group has sold out: "It's good, seeing each other again, but then you realize that we're not as sharp because we like each other more. Probably. There's none of the tension that existed before, which was what seemed to fuel the stuff. It's harder to do comedy now anyway: we're older, we've become the Establishment we took the piss out of... Actually, the truth is I find it depressing that we're getting back together again. It's like, we worked so hard to get careers beyond it, to get to this stage, and now we're being dragged back again. That's why I thought we were really good. But in the end we sold out."
