Monty Python performed the final show of their ten-day residency at London's O2 arena on Sunday June 20th. The comic team, including John Cleese, Eric Idle and Michael Palin, say it's probably the last time they'll all be on stage together. The show was broadcast live to fans around the world - and before taking their final bow the Pythons sang 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life'. For the last night of the show, famous fans such as comic actot Mike Myers also showed up SOUNDBITE, Mike Myers, actor (English): "Python are the McDaddy of comedy. I mean if there was a periodic table of element of comedy Python would have Pythonium. They're just everybody who does anything, you know, are influenced by Python." And so in the end - the curtain call had to come -- this could be the final bow the Pythons ever make together after more than 50 years of comedy.
