Monty Python star Idle to perform Not the Messiah at Royal Albert Hall

Josh Roberts

Monty Python’s Ruby Jubilee will be marked in London with a one-off performance of Eric Idle and John Du Prez’s Not The Messiah at The Royal Albert Hall on October 23.

Described as “a 90-minute comedic oratorio based on Monty Python’s Life of Brian”, the show stars Idle as well fellow Pythons Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, as well as Carol Cleveland and Neil Innes.

Other celebrations marking the comedy troupe’s 40th anniversary include the publication of a new book Monty Python Live!, as well as a new six-part documentary called Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut) to be aired in October.
