Plot

Widely considered the greatest comedy sketch show of all time, Monty Python’s Flying Circus rewrote the rules of British and worldwide television comedy in its epic run from 1969 through 1974. It Featured short, fast-paced comedy bits that range from the patently absurd to the surreal. The subject matter is often irreverent and risqué with loads of sight gags along with observational sketches with or without punchlines. Noted for frequent men in drag skits or posturing as uptight British gentlemen in derby hats and fine suits acting like idiots. Wildly creative steampunk-like animation segments were frequently interspaced with live-action.
