Monty Python Live at City Center is a live album by Monty Python, recorded at the New York City Center in 1976 and released only in the US in April of that year. A CD version was later released in 1997. The sketches come from the television series, with small variations, and Neil Innes' songs are his own. The album was not released in the UK, due to its similarity to Live at Drury Lane.
