Monty Python's Flying Circus - New Material

Thu Feb 23, 2006 3:26 am

It's true. Starting tonight (2/22/06) on PBS, MPFC will re-unite!

http://www.pbs.org/montypython/

From the link:

“Monty Python’s Personal Best,” a series of six outrageous one-hour specials showcasing the groundbreaking comedians with new footage and original clips, will premiere on PBS February 22, 2006.

Each episode will include members of the original Monty Python troupe performing in favorite clips from their unorthodox television series, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” repurposed with exclusive new material. Each of the five living Pythons — John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin — produced and wrote his own episode, and collaborated to create the sixth special in honor of deceased member Graham Chapman. The episodes will air over a three week period in two-hour blocks on PBS on February 22, March 1 and March 8.


So, don't be a stream of bat's piss. Be sure to tune in.

LOL, sounds like a hoot. Even MPFC being "repurposed" seems like it's part of one of their skits.

Well I'll tell you something my lad. When you're walking home tonight and some great homicidal maniac comes after you with a bunch of loganberries, don't come crying to me! Now, the passion fruit. When your assailant lunges at you with a passion fruit...

Yes, some wonderful memories! In the dim and depressing days of the '70s with three hour weeks, power cuts, strikes etc, it must have been wonderful just to come home and relax and watch MP (provided of course there wasn't a power cut on at the time!!!)

I actually had a Monty Python moment today; my company's social club is having its annual quiz on Friday and it's a big social occasion, great fun etc. We all think of weird names for teams - the more embarrassing for the MC to read out, the better!

I suggested "The Knights who say "Ni"" (from Holy Grail) ... but the young lady on my team hadn't heard of it! Oh, such lack of culture. They've all heard of Vicky Pollard, yeah, but not classic comedy !  Wink

OK - here's a true story.
A friend of mine was a bit of a teenage star in the 80's.
After his years of fame he's in Copenhagen early 90's having a beer in Nyhavn when John Cleese walks by. My friend who is a true MPFC fan realises who it was only after a while and then out of pure reflex jumps up and runs after him.

As he is running - he (the old "pop-star") comes to think about what he is doing - chasing a celebrity. Embarrasing beyond belief.
And as he comes up to Cleese and sees his face in the "oh dear - here comes anothe "don't mention" the war person" he just wants to sink through the ground. But somehow he manages to keep his head screwed on and says:
"Oh Mr Cleese. I've been a fan of yours since I was a kid. I especially loved the train compartment thing you did with Marty Feldman in the 60's."

John Cleese just stares at him in disbelief. And says
"Have you seen that!?! Where? How"
And my friend explains that he's got it all on Video.

Cleese gets all excited since it turns out most of that stuff was lost in a fire at BBC 20 years before. And that he hadn't seen it himself. My friend explains that Swedish National TV must have it. Cleese gets friends adress and writes to him a few days later. Friend find people in TV archives who find the stuff and it gets sent to Cleese. All ends with my friend visiting Cleese in the UK.

Stuff like that never happen me.

(A few years later the same guy gets a call from a dying WW2 uniform collector who has heard of his interest in WW2 stuff. And being afraid that his collection might get sold and spread for the wind when he dies, he GIVES it all to my friend. Friend now runs a company that rent uniforms out to movies)

Cleese as a Nazi officer:"Vwhat is zee big joke?"
Palin as a POW:"I can only give you name, rank and why did the chicken cross the road"
Cleese as a Nazi officer:"That's not funny" Slap, slap. "I voo-want to know zeh joke."
Palin as a POW:"Ok. How do you make a Nazi Cross?"
Cleese as a Nazi officer:"I don't know, how do you make a Nazi Cross.
Palin as a POW:"Step on his corn"(steps on his toe)
Cleese as a Nazi officer:"That's not funny!!!!!". Slap, slap."Now if you don't tell me zeh yoke, I shall hit you properly"

Quote from tonight's episode:

"...and he's on and on and on about how it is running the country and how many languages Margaret Powell can speak and she throws up all over the cuba libre. And spending four days on the tarmac at Luton Airport on a five-day package store with nothing to eat but dry sandwiches. And you can't even get a glass of Rodney's Red Barrel because you're still in England with the bloody bar closes every time you're thirsty. And the kids are crying and vomiting and breaking the plastic ashtrays. They keep telling you won't be another hour, but you know damn well your plane is still in Iceland, because it had to turn back, trying to take a party of Swedes to Yugoslavia. Of course it loads you up there at 3 a.m. in the morning. And then you sit on the tarmac for four hours because of unforeseen difficulties, i.e. the permanent strike of air traffic control over Paris. When you finally get to Malaga airport, everybody's cueing for the bloody toilet, and cueing for the bloody half-customs officers, and cueing for the bloody bus that isn't there, waiting to take you to the hotel that hasn't yet been built. When you finally get to the half-built ruin called the Hotel Limassol, while paying half the holiday money to a license Spaniard in a taxi, there's no water in the pool, there's no water in the bath, there's no water in the tap, there's only a bleeding lizard in the bidet, and half the rooms are doublebooked, and you can't sleep anyhow, 'cause the permanent are in the jungles in the hotel next door. Meanwhile, the Spanish National Tourist Board promises that the raging cholera epidemic is merely a mild outbreak of the Spanish Conleigh, while the like of the previous outbreak in 1616 even the bloody rats are dying from it! Meanwhile, the bloody guardia are arresting 16-year-olds for kissing in the streets----everybody's buying awful little horrid donkeys with their names on, I can't tell you the----and when you finally get to Manchester, there's only another bloody bus to carry you another 60 miles...

And it looks like Nietzsche will be shown a card for arguing with the official about the point of existence. Referee Confuscious say he go in book.

And it looks like Aristotle has an idea! He takes the ball and passes it down the pitch. Given to Archimedes now who lobs a cross...and Socrates with the diving header beats Hegel to give the Greeks a 1-0 lead in the final minute of play!
