The host of the show claims that Monty Python made four movies (And Now for Something Completely Different, Holy Grail, Life of Brian, Meaning of Life). They actually made five movies; he forgot about the Hollywood Bowl live film. See more »
So we went to Germany on a writing recce, who's heard of a writing recce? They picked us up at the airport and drove us straight to Dachau. All the way there, they kept denying they knew what it was. 'What camp? There is no camp here'. And we got there and it was closing and Graham said 'tell them we're jewish'. And they let us in.

"Live at Aspen" reunites the five remaining Pythons (the sixth one, Graham Chapman, also "appears" in the form of his ashes - a gimmick that is both macabre and moving) on stage for the first time in about 16 years. But although it's included in the same DVD ("Monty Python Live!") with "Live at the Hollywood Bowl", it's not really a live show. It's more of a documentary / tribute. It's nice to see that the Pythons still haven't lost their bad taste and unpredictability, and their fans will no doubt enjoy the archival footage from their movies and TV shows. It's a nice tribute and a minor diversion, but I got the feeling it could (and should) have been a lot meatier. (**1/2)
