John Cleese and Michael Palin Defend 'The Life of Brian' (BBC4, 1979)

In 1979 famed British sketch comedy troupe Monty Python produced a satirical film regarding the New Testament, The Life of Brian. The story depicts the “tragic comedy” of Brian, a luckless fellow who is mistaken for one of the numerous messiahs popping up in Judea two thousand years ago when Jesus of Nazareth was alive and preaching, and his doomed efforts to avoid the stigma of having hordes of maniacal followers creating a religion around him because, well, they desperately need someone to deliver them from Roman rule. 170 more words
