October 5th: 40 Years of Monty Python Heaven

Hey Guys

This is my 5th entry for Blog Every Day October (BEDO)

Today when I woke up late after having one of the worst nights of sleep ever, I was watching the BBC news which I dont normally do and saw something that said that Monty Python has been on our screens for 40 years. I can not believe that it first started back in 1969 with the Flying Circus series and it has some of the most memorable sketches ever.

Here's some great sketches from the show







Along with the series then came along the films

- Monty Python's Meaning Of Life
- Monty Python's Life Of Brain
- Monty Python and The Holy Grail
- And Now For Something Completely Different

Here's some more clips





There is also a Live performance from the Hollywood Bowl as well which was turned into a film as well. Which has made Monty Python one of the greatest comedies of all time.

Americans love it as well, which I feel proud of, when something comes over from America it is taken in by our British audience like Friends and The Simpsons. It is really hard to break into the American Market but Monty Python has done that which is brilliant.

Here is a clip from different actors/directors from America talk about why they love Monty Python that they say they would have done certain work if it wasnt for Monty Python.



It does make me proud to be British.

I thought I'll leave you in my opinion the best version of the Lumberjack song ever from the Monty Python Live At The Hollywood Bowl performed by Eric Idle as my video of the day.



OK thats it for now

See you guys tomorrow.
