For our older connisseurs of Python . . .

Anyone can run the cheese shop or parrot skits from YouTube (funny as they are), but it’s far more satisfying to take advantage of the Pythons’ university education and eruditeness by watching gems like this . . .

  6. I love the fact that Graham is playing Wilde decades before America reluctantly tolerated the closeted versions of Rosie and Ellen.
    The Pythonesque experience of the early 70s remains the highwater mark for televisual comedy and nobody that I’ve seen has ever been as ‘wildely’ inventive or exhibited such paradigmic shifting displays of public erudity that challenged the conventions of the day.

    hWooorre – para-dogmatic public erudity shifting-challenges

    As one suffering a certain deficite d’humour, les Pythons are so effortlessly multi-humoured

  8. When I was about 13 I was babysitting the neighbor kids and the parents come home and there I am watching Monty Python on TV.

    It was late the kids were in bed so I figured it was no big deal.

    However, the Parents called my Parents just to make sure it was okay for me to be watching that stuff- no kidding.

  9. Subversion is good for the soul . . . I wish I’d said that.

  10. You’re my hero!
    Django Reinhardt- freaking awesome…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My Mom was the one who used to watch Python. She thought it was way better then Saturday Night Live so she sort of encouraged me to attend the ” Circus ”

  11. There were two high spots I remember from the first couple of years of Saturday Night Live: when Ron Nessen (Ford’s press secretary) hosted, and Christopher Lee’s skit on hunting Nixon’s memoirs.

  12. George Carlin’s silent “monologue” was pretty ace.
