It's the mightiest heap of the inspiration-turned-ludicrous comedy to be found on any TV show. ShadeGrenade 10 September I loved 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' as a youngster, even though, strange as it may seem now, I used to be frightened by it. Unlike say 'The Frost Report', the show was not actually about anything.
Each episode had the look and feel of a nightmare; we saw terrible sights such as heads lopped off with razors, people puking their guts out, ten-ton weights falling on people, and human brains consumed with spoons. It was a brave person who stayed up late to watch this show. Characters would often cross over into different sketches, such a knight who kept hitting people with a rubber chicken, and 'The Colonel' who demanded items be terminated if they were too silly.
It was an inspired collection for a comedy team; Cleese and Chapman were good at sketches in which there was lots of verbal abuse, Palin and Jones excelled at items which sent up film genres, Gilliam provided some disturbing animations, while Idle contributed well-written skits involving word play.
In the first season, each episode opened with a bedraggled Palin emerging either from the sea or jungle to issue the following warning: "Its Flowers would then climb the screen, their petals opening to reveal the name of the show, to the strains of 'Liberty Bell' by Souza.
The very first show kicked off with a sketch in which a city gent Jones asks a Yokel farmer Chapman just what his sheep are doing up in the trees. The farmer says that they have realised that their lives consist LP) standing around and waiting to be eaten, so they have decided to do something about it.
We then cut to two Frenchmen Palin and Cleese in berets who demonstrate the commercial possibilities of flying sheep. From the reaction of the audience, its clear they are baffled rather than amused. Season 2 is generally thought of as the best. Clips of the show were regularly requested on 'Ask Aspel', a children's show hosted by Michael Aspel. After two excellent seasons and a movie, plus a couple of fun German specials, 'Python' went into decline, LP), and John Cleese's departure was the final nail in the coffin.
Season 4 was the last. Fortunately, the team reunited to make movies which, if anything, were funnier than the show, particularly 'Life Of Brian' The last one - 'The Meaning Of Life' ended with a clip of the title sequence of the very first television show, taking 'Python' full circle. Chapman's death in closed the door on Python for good. A brief reunion in - 'Python Night' - was a disaster, with Eddie Izzard unwisely trying to stand-in for the deceased star.
I must squeeze in a quick mention of lovely Carol Cleveland, with whom I was madly in love in the early Interesting People - Monty Python - Monty Pythons Flying Circus (Vinyl. Her bra coming off at the end of 'Scott Of The Sahara' had a profound impact on me! How can anyone not like Monty Python? Monty Python's Flying Circus is superb British humor at it's best! All the Monty Python movies were excellent, too!
My favorite actors in this are John Cleese and Eric Idle. I have my older brother to thank for getting me into this show! I got into Monty Python at the ripe old age of My brother was watching it one day, and I asked him if I can watch too. He gave me his okay, and after I saw the delirious humor of this, I quickly became a fan! And watched it everytime it came on. I also own some Monty Python cassette tapes and my brother has some on vinyl!
And who can forget that caveman who can only say, 'its'? Also, anyone remember that one about the self-defense class involving a 'Poi-ted stick'? Pure timeless classic! Monty Python cracks me up all the time! Even if you're not in a good mood, watching this will put you in one! I highly suggest this to anyone who is a stickler for British humor.
I give Monty Python's Flying Circus 5 out of 5 stars! Watch it if you can! The Circus is On JohnnyJohnHildegaard 6 April Monty Python's Flying Circus is a show with great comedy. It's so weird anything could be done in it. Like selling an albatross, or having a knight hit you with a chicken It's so hilarious, you'll drop right off. It's a very classic show for people with British taste. The movies were good BroadswordCallinDannyBoy 30 September The original sketch comedy show that has a very deserved cult following.
Almost every little sketch takes such bizarre twists and turns into something completely else that you'll literally never see it coming. Terry Gilliam's innovative, and equally absurd, animations are no different in their appearances between sketches. Often serving as transitions, but really this is just one side-splittingly funny compilation of sheer absurdity. Poking fun at just about everything that you could possibly imagine - talk shows, courts, daily life, the Spanish Inquisistion, the military, etc Skits end unexpectedly, some shots are used many times, random characters appear only to speak one line, and all that makes for what is quite possibly the best crafted presentation of absurdity and chaos ever made.
Six intellectuals who revolutionized comedy with mostly weirdo characters policy 18 March The Python group has been written about to death and their show is either seen as totally ingenious or the stupidest thing to ever be aired. My personal view is the former although some of the skits can be tedious and stretched out too long. Long before the wholesome, politically correct American sitcoms flooded European television you could actually get away with broadcasting this show which had sex, blood and violence not graphic but more suggestive.
John Cleese has often commented that very little censorship was Interesting People - Monty Python - Monty Pythons Flying Circus (Vinyl enforced during previews of the show. Like most fans I think the parrot sketch is hilarious but it is not really my favorite. I can't really think of a favorite sketch I have because there are so many I find hysterical. One of them is the interview of Arthur Interesting People - Monty Python - Monty Pythons Flying Circus (Vinyl Sheds" Jackson which is some kind of parody of those boring art shows, where the man in the chair is supposed to be really respected and everybody is supposed to praise him.
The Pythons like to poke holes in those people's arrogant facade and they are especially vicious when it comes to chartered accountants and religious organizations. I could go on forever describing the "meaning of Flying Circus" but I think the answer is very subjective. The only way is to judge for yourself. I cannot say that all people will find the show funny and it is not really a show for people who only like toilet humor like the Farrelly Bros.
I will close by saying that the show is such an institution that "pythonesque" has been included in Oxford's dictionary much to the dismay or joy to the Pythons. Who knows, with them you can never be sure.
Brilliant, innovative comedy. Possibly the greatest comedy series of all time. Certainly the most influential, iconic and quoted. Season 1 was great, but not their best. Still experimenting and finding their feet, it had some great sketches, but nothing as iconic as what was to come. Season 2 was where they really hit their straps.
Season 3 was more of the same. Season 4 was where they tapered off. John Cleese had left and the creativity just wasn't anywhere near the levels of Seasons 2 and 3. No wonder it was only 6 episodes. Timeless comedy that has become embedded in culture. It's that big, brilliant and important. The series was a landmark in television history and broke a number of taboos and boundaries.
But what really made Monty Python work was mainly not the jokes but the performances. S1, Ep1. Error: please try again. S1, Ep2. S1, Ep3. S1, Ep4. A change from street clothes to swim trunks turns into a burlesque act; a karate class exercises defense tactics against fresh fruit; a man tries to buy a book about false teeth. S1, Ep5. S1, Ep6.
Sketches include: a German composer with an extraordinarily long name; crooks plan an elaborate scheme to buy a watch; a chocolate-company owner markets "Crunchy Frog. S1, Ep7. The BBC may be throwing it together, the Pythons clearly are not. It is purposely written and performed not for the crowd at the Camden Palace theatre but for the people who will purchase it. John Cleese mutters, "End of side one" and, once the listener has turned the album over, Eric acknowledges John as the chap who interviewed Sir Edward Ross on the other side.
Later John begins to complain about his deceased Norwegian Blue to Graham's military officer who gruffly advises: "You want the pet shop on the next track! The laughter that the Parrot sketch engenders is almost at fever pitch. Well, as fevered as this audience got. While the Pythons are actively tackling the limitless fun of sound recording, the BBC engineers seem to be treating it more like a simple radio show. This Python record utilises sound effects that are very reminiscent of Goon Shows of the past.
In particular, the coughing cat in the Interesting People sketch has a decidedly Goonish feel to it. Harry Morris was the man in charge of them. His mindset was that comedy meant silly sounds, musical stings and speeded-up voices. It's funny but uninspired. Conventional but not Python.
Despite the limitations of BBC Records this is a tight and technically savvy first attempt to distil the aural insanity of Monty Python for the turntable. Monty Pythons Sings Python on Song Terms Privacy Credits Newsletter.
