Something funny this way comes

By Maria Gregoriou

Tonight if you are in Limassol and you are in the mood for a bit of a laugh then the 1983 comedy Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life will be screened at Sto Dromo for free.

With the start to the year being very serious and worldwide events of tragedy booming from the news, a few hours away from it all may be needed.

If you are a fan of the Monty Python films, which poke a bit of fun at just about everything and are silly enough to get away with it, then you have your night booked.

The 1983 British musical comedy film, which was the last film to feature all six Python members (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin), is made-up of a series of comedy sketches.

Some of the sketches include a woman in labour in the hospital who is being ignored by doctors who are more interested in using hospital equipment to impress the hospital’s administrator; a recently unemployed Roman Catholic man who goes home to his wife and many children to talk about the church’s opposition to the use of contraception; and a condemned man who chooses to be executed by being chased off the edge of a cliff by topless women.

Fans of the British comedy films have most probably already seen The Meaning of Life, but will surely be back for another viewing if possible.

Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life
Screening of the 1983 comedy. January 13. Sto Dromo, 34 Genethliou Mitella Street, Limassol. 8.45pm. Free. Tel: 99-477333
