Happy Birthday, Monty Python!

My ba-rain hurts!

I grew up on Monty Python in the late sixties and early seventies, and besides all the naked breasts I remember from the show, I simply adored their comedy! Loved their deadpan humor, their outright silliness, their surreal animation. I’ve only just yesterday realized that October 5th marked their 40th anniversary of their broadcast on BBC. Having grown up in the Adirondacks of upstate New York, and only able to get the reception of 2 1/2 television channels, I quite fell into Monty Python by accident from a Canadian channel (I think it the half-channel…).

Oh, how I miss This-isn’t-an-argument sketch.

Doug and Dinsdale Piranha brothers.

The Inquisition.

The Funniest Joke In The World.

The Lumberjacks.

And who could forget about Spam!-Spam!-Spam!-Spam!

They were ground breaking, and I didn’t even know it.  I loved their stream-of-consciousness approach…about how they merged from one sketch to another in dream-like fashion. The naked girls. The absurdity!

So, there is an IFC.com Monty Python, Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut), and a CNN article that brought it to my attention. Take a peek.

So, happy birthday, Monty Python! I continue to quote your comedy throughout my life!

    Besides the fact that I, too, love Monty Python, what caught my eye was “Adirondacks in upstate NY” and “2-1/2 channels.” My gosh, were you living in my house? I’m sure I would have noticed you.

    Seriously, what part of the North Country do you hail from? I grew up in Degrasse, in St. Lawrence County. Near…nothing. 🙂
