Monty Python's Life of Brian, also known as Life of Brian, is a 1979 British comedy film starring and written by the comedy group Monty Python, and directed by Jones. It tells the story of Brian Cohen, a young Jewish man who is born on the same day as, and next door to, Jesus Christ and is subsequently mistaken for the Messiah. The film contains themes of religious satire that were controversial at the time of its release, drawing accusations of blasphemy and protests from some religious groups. Thirty-nine local authorities in the UK either imposed an outright ban, or imposed an X certificate, effectively preventing the film from being shown, as the distributors said the film could not be shown unless it was unedited and carried the original AA certificate. Some countries, including Ireland and Norway, banned its showing, with a few of these bans lasting decades. The film makers used such notoriety to benefit their marketing campaign, with posters stating "So funny it was banned in Norway!" The film was a box-office success, grossing fourth-highest of any film in the United Kingdom in 1979 and highest of any British film in the United States that year. LESS
The remaining members of British comedy troupe Monty Python announced on Thursday they would regroup for the first time since the 1980s to stage a comedy and musical show next year at one of London's biggest venues. The one-off show on July 1 will be tailored to fit the massive O2 Arena and feature some of the group's most famous material, but also will include skits never before performed on stage, the five Pythons said at a news conference. The comedy team made its name in the BBC television sketch series "Monty Python's Flying Circus" in the 1970s and went on to make offbeat feature films such as "Monty Python And The Holy Grail" and "Monty Python's Life of Brian".
