Monty Python

Post by Aino » Fri May 13, 2005 10:43 pm

Of course Monty Python is a legendary comedy group, but what are your thoughts on them? :) Do you have a favourite Python or sketch? Or is it just too hard choose? Which film do you appreciate the most?

I'm sure you lot mostly live in a "League world"... But have you encountered any Pythonesque situations in your life? I certainly sometimes feel like I'm in a Python sketch! :D

Come, come to the wonderful world of Monty Python!

I can't believe this is the first Python topic! Kudos to Aino for starting one, bad me for falling down on the job.

Oh, Python. Light of my comedy life. Terry Jones my sexmo fave, Michael Palin by far and away the most talented of them all. Best sketch? But there are so many.

Naughty school boys, crunchy frog, Arthur "two sheds" Jackson, the opticians on the german tapes, the shoe discussion in Life of Brian, fish slapping time...so, so many. And without them, no League.
Hello my darling it's me again. Where are you?

It could get funnier if we keep doing it.

:shock: there wasn't a python topic before?! wow. the sillywalks is hilarious, and I have to say the holy grail is the best film, followed closely by the life of brian.

I notice most seem to favour Life of Brian in terms of films. I love it but Holy Grail is my favourite.

Can't pick a favourite sketch, there's just too many! And I used to wish I was tall and lanky so I could do silly walks (doesn't have the same effect when you're 5"3).

The Grim Reaper sketch in the 'Meaning of Life' always cracks me up.

"You Englishmen have no balls!"

As for 'The Holy Grail' I heard it was in Elvis's video collection.

My favourite EVER Python character is [& always has been] the Boring Prophet from Life of Brian. He's only on screen for less than a minute but he drives me to hysteric tears.

Favourite movie is Holy Grail, favourite Python is Palin [of course] & my favourite Circus sketch is probably the Twit Olympics. :D

Its not that. Actual Monty Python's Flying Circus is hard to come by. It is only repeated on Sky, which only a minority have. It is not on DVD or video and rarely repeated on normal telly. Its only the films which people have seen nowdays, which isn't the same. I love it.

The cds are well worth buying if you've not come across Python before, you can get them for about a fiver.

Don't they have the book of scripts from the series, or is it just wishful thinking on my part?

Papalaz; There were two script books two volumes called "All the Words", they've been out of print for a while but I got mine in a charity shop so they should still be available somewhere.

Tubbs; Its been on the Paramount Comedy Channel I believe. I don't know if you can get that or not but if yoou can I would look out for it.

Thanks for the info Snr. Stonesy. I thought I'd heard of some script books floating about.
