Monty Python Live at Drury Lane is a live album released by Monty Python in 1974. It was recorded on the final night of their four-week run at the Drury Lane Theatre in London earlier that year and edited onto disc with new studio linking material by Eric Idle and Michael Palin. The majority of the sketches are from Flying Circus and vary slightly from their television counterparts, although Cocktail Bar was written for the third series but not used. The team also revived sketches from At Last The 1948 Show, including Secret Service, Wrestling and Four Yorkshiremen – the latter on its way to being adopted as a Python standard. Neil Innes provided the musical interludes, while Eric Idle’s then wife Lyn Ashley replaced regular Python actress Carol Cleveland in supporting roles.

The album was the group’s most successful to date, reaching No.19 in the UK charts.
