Quotes

[first lines]
Steve: Good evening. In the late 1960s, a comic force emerged which was so original, so zany, so fabulously different that many people felt that the world of entertainment had been changed forever.

Rather disapointing however, some of the funniest sketches are noticably cut short, leaving out the punch line. Great introduction sampler for folks who are less familiar with the comedy groups Flying Circus matereal, but fanatic devotees might be somewhat distraught with sketches being trimmed.
