ERIC IDLE OF MONTY PYTHON

What an amazing influence Monty Python has had on the world. First the BBC television shows, then albums, then movies, and now all the repeats and replays. This interview was done in the late 70s, shortly before they were about to begin writing the script for “The Life of Brian.” It began as the life of Jesus, but the world wasn’t ready for that. Eric tells about some of the Python’s outrageous, hilarious, and blasphemous ideas for the script, none of which made it into the movie. You’ll get a glimpse of their thinking before they have to tame it down a bit, actually quite a bit.
