Like The Secret Policeman's Other Ball, Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl consists of "concert" footage of the nonsensical British Monty Python troupe. This 77-minute collection of skits and blackouts features stalwart Pythoners Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, together with semi-regulars Carol Cleveland and Neil Inness. The troupe's stream-of-consciousness humor transfers well to the L.A. stage; even the most familiar and time-worn bits -- including a TV quiz show featuring such contestants as Marx, Lenin and Mao -- elicits loud laughter from the enthusiastic audience. Originally lensed on videotape, Live at the Hollywood Bowl was transferred to film for theatrical distribution.
