A question you may be asking yourself if you came across this page by accident:
don't I have anything better to do than stumble around random sites on the Internet,
and who the hell is "Monty Python" anyway?
Monty Python's Flying Circus was the totally meaningless name coined
for the innovative English comedy troupe comprised of John Cleese, Eric
Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, and the late Graham Chapman.
Embraced by the critics and public alike, the team enriched airwaves with
their distinctive brand of irreverent and often surreal sketch comedy and
satire on BBC-1 from 1969 through 1973 and on BBC-2, without Cleese, for
the last few months of 1974. The show offered savage broadsides against
the pomposity and repression of the British establishment, outlandish spoofs
of European history, knowing satires of leading intellectual and cultural
figures, and lots of men in dresses.
