The irreverent Monty Python comedy troupe present a series of skits which are often surreal, bawdy, uncompromising and/or tasteless, but nearly always hilarious. Written by

This series was one of the first to deviate from the norms of television credits. Among the odd credits gags that were used were: an episode where the credits scrolled sideways; credits that used gag names for the cast & crew; ending credits rolled at the beginning of the episode (or the opening titles delayed until nearly the end); and credits that roll a few minutes early, followed by spoof versions of BBC broadcast announcements (even incorporating the BBC "rolling Earth" logo in use at the time).

One episode omits the entire opening sequence of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" in favour of a simple title caption - "The Cycling Tour". See more »
Monty Python's Flying Circus is superb British humor at it's best! All the Monty Python movies were excellent, too! My favorite actors in this are John Cleese and Eric Idle. I have my older brother to thank for getting me into this show! I got into Monty Python at the ripe old age of 11. My brother was watching it one day, and I asked him if I can watch too. He gave me his okay, and after I saw the delirious humor of this, I quickly became a fan! And watched it everytime it came on.
I also own some Monty Python cassette tapes and my brother has some on vinyl! I have far too many favorite Monty Python bits to name,some of my faves are "The Lumberjack Song", "It's the Mind", and "The Bishop"! And who can forget that caveman who can only say, 'its'? Also, anyone remember that one about the self-defense class involving a 'Poi-ted stick'? Pure timeless classic! Monty Python cracks me up all the time! Even if you're not in a good mood, watching this will put you in one!
I highly suggest this to anyone who is a stickler for British humor. Also, watch their movies: The Holy Grail, And Now for Something Completely Different, and The Life of Brian. I give Monty Python's Flying Circus 5 out of 5 stars! Watch it if you can!
