And Now for Something Completely Different
+ intro by Nancy Lewis, Monty Python’s US manager (1970s-1990s)
Check out all your favourite Flying Circus sketches in this bumper TV special.
Dir Ian MacNaughton
With John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones
Made on a very low budget and with the intention of introducing the Pythons to the American market, all of the favourite early Monty Python’s Flying Circus sketches were filmed without a live audience and included the parrot sketch, nudge nudge, hell’s grannies and some great Gilliam visuals. If you don’t have 23 hours to re-watch all four series then this is for you.
BBC 1999. Dir Ralph Lee. 25min.
Michael Palin revisits Monty Python filming locations.
