This was so much fun! I'm an old Python fan and happy to say I passed the love onto my kids, who also loved the event and so enjoyed hearing and seeing Mr. Jones. An awesome time was had by all. The interviewer was a too obnoxious for my taste but when he finally shut up, it was great again.

The print was bad and the interviewer was terrible (!) but Terry Jones was great!

On the plus side:
+ Fun to see the movie on the big screen with so many Python fans
+ Interesting interview and questions from the audience with Terry
+ Very beautiful theater complete with Wurlitzer Organ playing (live)
+ Lots of interesting restaurants around (we went to Anchor Oyster Bar . I agree with Yelp reviews - excellent).
on the negative side
A very poor choice of interviewer to talk with Terry. He was arrogant, time consuming and a poor leader of the discussion. He seemed to be unfamiliar with MP's work and the intro was a reading (so it seemed) verbatim from wikipedia. It was an opportunity lost to hear about why the skits were chosen, who wrote them, and more.
NO PARKING! Yeah, the Castro Theater says as much, but it's ridiculous. It's not a bad walk to go 3-4 blocks to where there is street parking, but it's limited to 2 hours starting at 9PM. Well, you need to be at the show at 6:00-6:30 which exposes you to 60 minutes or less of getting caught. Sure would be nice if there was more parking or the theater arranged something with a local business that was not using their parking lot in the evening.
All in all a very nice evening!
More Information About Monty Python and the Holy Grail
SF Sketchfest welcomes legendary Monty Python member Terry Jones for an in-depth onstage conversation and screening of one of the greatest comedies of all time, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Inside Joke, hosted by Carl Arnheiter, is a conversation about the craft of comedy. Think of it as a cross between Charlie Rose and This Old House, without the constant stream of interruptions or power tools.
Best known as part of Monty Python, Jones and the other Pythons got together in 1969 and wrote and performed Monty Python’s Flying Circus until 1974. Jones co-directed the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail with Terry Gilliam in 1975 and directed Monty Python’s Life of Brian in 1979 and Monty Python’s Meaning of Life in 1981, which won the Special Jury Prize at Cannes. He directed Personal Services (1987), and in 1989 he wrote and directed Erik The Viking. He wrote, directed and played Toad in The Wind In The Willows (1995) which won the Chicago Children’s Film Festival and the Wisconsin Children’s Film Festival. He also wrote the screenplay for Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.
He has presented numerous TV documentaries: The Crusades (BBC 1993) Ancient Inventions (Discovery, 1997) Hidden Histories (Discovery, 2002), Medieval Lives (BBC 2004) and Barbarians (BBC 2006). His first children’s book Fairy Tales, published in 1981, has been translated into six foreign editions and adapted for television and radio. The Saga of Erik the Viking won the 1984 Children’s Book Award. Nicobobinus was awarded a Silver Seal by the Parents’ Choice editors; Fantastic Stories won the Smarties Prize 1992; His has a new series of books: The Knight and the Squire, The Lady and the Squire and The Tyrant & The Squire. The Lady and the Squire was short-listed for the 2002 Whitbread Prize.
Jones wrote Chaucer’s Knight in 1981 since when it has been reprinted numerous times. He frequently lectures on the late fourteenth century in universities in Britain, Europe and the United States. His book Who Murdered Chaucer? was published in 2003 & his article Was Richard II a Tyrant? was published in Fourteenth Century England ed. Nigel Saul in 2008.
Terry Jones’s War On The War On Terror was published January 2005 by Nation Books, New York, and has been published in France and Scandinavia though not in Britain.
Jones co-wrote the libretto and directed Evil Machines, his first foray into the world of opera, based on a collection of his short stories, which premiered in Lisbon in 2008. He is currently working on a short opera with Anne Dudley for the Royal Opera House, London.
