John Cleese and Eric Idle are continuing their two-man sit-down comedy tour of the Southeastern U.S. If you are anywhere it Florida, it will soon be impossible to escape them. So why not give in? Ticket info is here, and the sooner you do, the better your seats will be.
Very excited to read Eric Idle’s The Writer’s Cut, brand new today on Amazon. Perfect way to celebrate a Python anniversary… @ericidle @montypython
On October the 5th, 1969, the very first episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus first aired on the BBC.
A lot of things have changed since then, but those shows are just as funny now as they were then. The second episode recorded was the first one aired. Here’s what BBC audiences first saw that evening:
Remembering Graham, who became an ex-Chapman this day in 1989.
Taken from us before he wreaked nearly enough havoc.
A quick break from Python posting:
One hundred and twenty five years ago today, Julius Henry Marx was born.
When he was visiting Rome, a priest came up to him and said “I’d like to thank you for all of the joy you’ve brought into this world.”
He immediately responded “And I’d like to thank you for all of the joy you’ve taken out of this world.”
Happy birthday Groucho.
