Monty Python and the Holy Grail
is consistently rated as one of the best comedies of all time, and with good reason. Most of the Pythons are Oxford or Cambridge alums, which might explain the incredible success of their sketch comedy show and films. Though Life of Brian
and The Meaning of Life
might be likelier fan favorites, Holy Grail
is the first of the Python films to attempt a unified plot. After a screening of the film, Sir Lancelot himself, John Cleese
, will answer questions from the audience. “Absurd or ridiculous questions only” are requested. 8 p.m. Friday at the Broward Center, 201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale; 954-462-0222; browardcenter.org. Tickets cost $75 to $250 via ticketmaster.com.
