” He’s not the Messiah. He’s a very naughty boy! Now, piss off! ” -Brian’s Mom.

TODAY AT 21.00 COMEDY WEDNESDAYS: Monty Python’s Life of Brian.

From a British comedy group, the Monty Pythons, comes the story of Brian. Born on Christmas in the stables next-door to Jesus, he spends his life being mistaken for the messiah. A controversial film at the time of its release, it uses satire to criticise our hypocrisy, the desperate need to believe in a leader and to have an ideology to hold on to – in this case, the Christian religion. The Monty Pythons are at the top of their craft.
