Forerunner to Monty Python, 1 September 2006
Author: Darryl Cox (DD-931) from Norman, Oklahoma

This is definitely one of the ancestors of Monty Python. I could be wrong, but I do believe it was recorded live in front of an audience, and one of the things that made it so fascinating to me was the interaction between the performers and the audience. I swear I can remember times when the audiences jeered or teased the performers, which to me was occasionally as funny as what the performers were doing. The other thing I remember about it was a very haunting performance on camera by the Moody Blues of "Nights in White Satin"...years before that song was a hit in the States.

I'm sure the BBC "wiped the tapes" of this one, damn them. Who says only American TV programmers are idiots?
