Monty Python

The show

In total there were four series of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" containing 45 shows. By the start of series 4 however John Cleese had left the group to work on his own projects with his wife Connie Booth.
The shows were mainly a mix of zany madcap humour, satire and school boy pranks and jokes. Memorable sketches include "Spam Sketch", "Nudge, Nudge", "Upper Class Twit Of The Year" and the unforgettable "Parrot Sketch". The main "theme" that the shows revolved around was that there should be no beginning or end to the sketches but more of a stream of consciousness instead. The Pythons inherited this idea from a show which Spike Milligan did called "Q5" in which the same sort of idea was expressed.
