Last month, Monty Python returned to the stage with a massive live show featuring favorite songs and sketches from their long career. Monty Python Live (mostly) took over London's O2 Arena and now they've shared video of the show.

The legendary "Lumberjack" sketch gets a modern update, with Michael Palin transitioning from the "Lion Tamer" sketch, telling John Cleese, "I never really wanted to be a lion tamer. I wanted to be a systems analyst. But then I got this postcard from my aunt in Canada and it looked wonderful, and I realized the one thing I wanted was to be a lumberjack!" He reveals his red flannel and dons furry hat as a choir of mounties -- including Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones -- join him on stage, singing the classic Python tune. Watch the hilarious video above.

The DVD / Blu-ray of the show will be released November 10th of this year. It is currently available for pre-order through their official website.
