oh gawd I could go on all night with these!

Man: Albatross! Albatross! Albatross!

(A customer approaches him.)

Customer: Two choc-ices please.

Man: I haven't got choc-ices. I only got the albatross. Albatross!

Customer: What flavour is it?

Man: It's a bird, innit. It's a bloody sea bird . .. it's not any ****ing flavour. Albatross!

2 fave lines (i'm not so good at filling in the accompanying bits):

"But I'm not dead yet!" and....

"I have plenty of friends who are lumberjacks...and hardly any of them are transvestites"

Okay, Okay Hands up? I am one of those who has NEVER seen a Monty Python Skit? Yes, I admit it and I am quite happy about it.
Hang on I probably lie here, I saw a bit of one once way backkkkk, and thought to myself then??WTH is that all about, realised that either I was past it or my Humour Buds had gone walk about, I honestly cannot see anything funny in it whatsoever.
And I am not totally decrepit, I love the likes of Blackadder, some of the Goodies, so I am not totally past it, unfortunately Monty Python never did it for me, so now you all know who the guilty party is?:bolt:

I had totally forgotten about the dead parrot thing, as well as the funniest joke in the world.. BRILLIANT!!
Take some time to watch the stuff at YOUTUBE, no sense in posting it all here...

Now that we've switched to DVD, we've got the DVDs of all the TV and all the movies.

Most of the time, they have me completely on the floor. Then every once in a while, I look at them and go -- "What am I thinking of? Why do we own this?"

A month or so later, we'll pull the same bit out and we'll both be rolling on the floor.

Right now, life is at the point where one thing makes a lot of sense: AND NOW, FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

So, so many...

The entire dead parrot sketch

We are the knights that go "ni" *

"He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy!"

Mr Creosote, especially the fish saying "Oh sh*t - it's Mr Creosote"


* On the Holy Grail, my daughter is 8 and has just discovered that movie. She watches it over and over. Good humour is timeless

Sorry but I have never actually seen Monty Python or any of the films. I prefer the Carry On Team. I have though seen snippets of Monty Python. My other favourite is the late great Ricky Fulton, his sketches and the Scotch & Wry team are pure class.

I too have been to Doune Castle. Lovely place. They have an entire Python section in their very small gift shop. The reason it was filmed there was at the time it was not part of the trust. No other castle would allow(wonder why) MP to film at their site. So most of the film was done there except for a few model shots (shhhh). OH the gift shop also has coconuts you can borrow and run up and down the entry way pretending to be the faithful servant Patsy. I have a video of myself doing the "one day son all this will be yours" scene in the room.

Dai sorry you don't get it. The comedy is brilliant and attacks everyone equally.

The man was brilliant. I have the video of Francie & Josie in the house and got the DVD of IM Jolly for ma dad on Fathers Day. I also picked up Triple Scotch & Wry on vhs at a stall at a Band Competition it cost me 80p. My favourite Polis ones was the one with the pope and the orange band coming along the road and the one with Mark McManus (aka Taggart).

Personally, for "Brit Com" I think the Goon Show is a hoot!
Try to find "The Treasure of Loch Lomond" some time for a giggle...

"Three days we've stood waist-deep in this icebound loch. What's the idea then?"

"Don't you LIKE fishing, Moriarty?"

"FISHING? But we haven't any rods!"

"They have to die sometime. We just wait until then."

But getting back to Python... the sight gags are a blast. Woman beating her rug with a cat, in Holy Grail... or the poacher in Jabberwocky. His first snare he finds a live rabbit and puts it in his haversack. At the NEXT snare, he finds a live FOX, and puts it in the same sack. The rest of the scene, you see the sack writhing, and hear the sounds of the epic life or death struggle going on...

Ah!! now you are talking Comedy Bill, The Goons will never be replaced , and you could "see" the scenes even when they were just standing on stage in front of the microphones? brilliant stuff

Heilan Mary

The Goons sound a right hoot. Havent seen them before. Is there any youtube links for them?

Heilan Mary.

The Goons (Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan, and Sir Harry Secombe) were radio personalities, before going on to TV and Silver Screen.

I have not seen anything other than B/W photos of them in BBC Studios. Their comedy programme is on Cassette tapes, LPs and possibly CD.

Having seen the links posted below, I stand corrected... (my legs are both the same length now! The band can stop marching in circles.)

Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.
