According to this http://www.intriguing.com/mp/_scripts/livebowl.asp there is the Bookshop Sketch in Monty Python Live At The Hollywood Bowl at the very end. Now, I don't seem to remember this in the show at all! I have the DVD, and just watched it on the recent mourning of Graham's death. What am I missing? Please help me!

That is because the scripts there are full of errors.

The bookshop sketch was performed live, but it was at "The secret policeman's ball" (to raise money for Amnesty).

Originally it was a sketch in "The 1948 show", by the way.

talking about the bookshop sketch: seems they sold the rights to some of their sketches for other ones to perform.

That is nothing new. The sketches have also been performed by the French and the Dutch and no doubt other languages as well. Also, other English actors have sometimes played the sketches as a tribute, like 'the 4 yorkshiremen' by Eddie Izzard, Alan Rickman and others.

There are 3 John Cleese versions of the bookshop sketch, the At Last the 1948 show version with Marty Feldman, the Monty python version with Michael Palin and the Amnesty International version with Connie Booth.
