Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced ‘Not The Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy)’ for Blu-ray release on June 8th. Here’s the synopsis:
In 1979, Monty Python’s Life of Brian turned the Biblical epic on its head. Now, the creators of Spamalot Eric Idle & John Du Prez turn classical music on its ear! Prepare for Not the Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy), the comedic masterpiece that combines all of the unforgettable humor of the Python’s most celebrated film with the overblown grandeur of operatic solists, full symphony orchestra and chorus. Filmed live on October 23, 2009, the performance stars Eric Idle with special appearances by original Python troupe members, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, and Terry Gilliam.
