Monty Python was, is and always will be the most prolific
and funniest sketch comedy troupe on the planet.
To say that they changed the way comedy sketches were
made is a drastic understatement.
In 1969 BBC Television aired the first show of Monty Python’s
Flying Circus and the world has not been the same since.
I absolutely worship the ground they walk on, and I play
them on the show all the time.
Their classic sketches are so many that to mention them all here
would wear my fingers out.
The Argument Clinic, Cheese Shop, Ann Elk, The Penultimate Supper,
Crunchy Frog, The Spanish Inquisition, The Parrot Sketch and many,
What I find the most fascinating is that they shaped the sketches
into classics all without the use of a punchline!
They have confirmed this on many an interview that they’ve given over
This piece is certainly a classic, thought it is basically the same
skit that you have heard on their audio recordings it has some subtle
That’s part of the MP magic though, they constantly changed things around.
Sometimes it was the dialogue, other times it was the actors themselves.
The lines are a little different, as is a certain prop.
Still a superb sketch, no matter how you look at it.
Terry Jones, Carol Cleveland, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Michael Palin
and John Cleese.

I just love her crying at the end!
