IFC TO STREAM THE 40th ANNIVERSARY MONTY PYTHON REUNION FOR FANS LIVE AND UNCUT

Visit IFC.com or PythOnline.com October 15 @ 9:00 PM EST to See the Python Troupe LIVE On Stage at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City

Live Streaming of this Historic Event Made Possible Through Ustream

New York, NY - October 13, 2009 - The Independent Film Channel (IFC) announced today that Python fans across the U.S. will be able to enjoy the long-awaited reunion of the legendary Monty Python comedy troupe LIVE on IFC.com and PythOnline.com. The invitation-only event, held October 15 at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City, will celebrate the group's 40th anniversary and premiere the original IFC documentary, "Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer's Cut)."

By visiting IFC.com or PythOnline.com Thursday, October 15 at approximately 9:00 PM EST, audiences across the U.S. can watch the historic event reuniting all five surviving members of the Monty Python team - John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin - as they take to the stage for a Q&A discussion with the audience. IFC will produce the live stream in conjunction with Ustream, the leading internet broadcasting platform.

This event marks the first time The Pythons have been together in this manner in more than ten years. In true Python fashion, the troupe will somehow appear in its complete six-member form for their 40th reunion, although Python member Graham Chapman died in 1989. The Pythons will also accept a Special Award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) honoring their outstanding contribution to film and television.

"Whenever you have the likes of John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin on stage together, in an unscripted format, no one can begin to predict what might happen. We're delighted to be able to stream the Q&A LIVE, so Python fans everywhere can be a part of the spontaneous and spirited nature of the event," said Jennifer Caserta, executive vice president and general manager of IFC. "This reunion will undoubtedly make its mark in pop culture history."

Ustream President and Founder Brad Hunstable said, "The comedic legends behind Monty Python have touched generations around the world. We're honored that IFC has selected our technology as a way to bring this historic event to people everywhere. Live streaming gives everyone a front row seat to The Pythons and we can't wait to see what will unfold."

In addition to watching the event LIVE, fans can also embed the video into other web properties such as blogs, fan pages, and more by visiting http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ifclive.

IFC will air the full six-hour version of "Monty Python: Almost The Truth (The Lawyer's Cut)" during the network's six day "Python-a-thon" October 18th through 23rd at 9 PM Eastern/8 PM Central. The first part of the documentary premiers on Sunday, October 18, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. After each episode, IFC will air a classic Python film and an episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
