Matching the popularity of the masters of music, The Beatles, the six-man pop culture group, “Monty Python”, has carved their name in history and changed the world. As a legendary comedy group, they have influenced creators around the globe. In commemoration of their 40th anniversary, SHITA COME this year conducts tribute screenings of works by Monty Python! Look forward to a stream of their works, from “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” to the UK’s BBC TV programs produced by the Python members. We have also picked out comedy works which have been great hits on the BBC in recent years. Also featuring the appeal of the BBC Empire, which, despite being a public broadcast station, has continued to walk a fine line and push broadcasting limits with their witty and sarcastic takes on society.
