Monty Python’s final show will be broadcast to theaters around the world

On July 20th, the five remaining members of famed comedy group Monty Python will reunite for one last show, and you won’t have to fly to the United Kingdom to watch. Due to popular demand, The Last Night of Monty Python will be streamed live to 1,500 theaters around the world.
