Debating Monty Python’s Life of Brian

On 30 December 2013, I spoke on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme about the controversy sparked in 1979 by Monty Python’s Life of Brian. The programme featured a conversation with John Cleese and Michael Palin as they prepared for the Pythons’ reunion later that year.

I also gave a paper at a conference held in June 2014 organised by the King’s College London Department of Theology and Religious Studies entitled ‘Jesus and Brian, or What Have the Pythons Done for Us?’
