Product description

Product Description

Those members of the 'Monty Python' team still extant - John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam - are joined by the ashes of their late colleague, Graham Chapman, for this special evening at the US Comedy Arts Festival, Aspen, in October 1998. The Pythons discuss the effect that their work has had on subsequent comedy shows with presenter Robert Klein, who intersperses the conversation with film clips and sketches.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Best of Monty Python's Flying Circus will probably be purchased mostly for the standards--those sketches that have become the staple material of every office joker and pub bore in Christendom--the Spanish Inquisition, the Australian philosophers, the Ministry of Silly Walks. Good fun though these are, once you've expunged the memory of a million witless impersonators, this collection is really worth owning for the material that never quite registered in the popular consciousness. Sketches such as the Summarise Proust Competition, the misunderstanding over the Hungarian phrasebook and John Cleese's manically embittered architect with a grudge against the Freemasons are every bit as funny as the more familiar hits and, free of any associated baggage, they will startle and delight the younger viewer as much as Python must have startled and delighted their parents when first broadcast in the 1970s.

On the DVD: The Best of Monty Python's Flying Circus is a three-disc set, and each volume is equipped with a sketch selector that is fussier than strictly necessary. But this is more than compensated for by the wonderful Terry Gilliam animations that the viewer uses to navigate. Subtitles are available in English only. --Andrew Mueller --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
