    It is interesting even when nothing much happens, which is for most of its 3-hour running time. Read full review

    No more I can say. Should be studied and learnt by all actors in the world.

    I've talked to a gentleman from the UK who witnessed the original TV broadcast of Monty Python's Flying Circus. It has been a mind blowing experience. Although i've discovered it a couple of decades after the gentleman above, i can only share his feelings.There is no need to underline the importance of Monty Python's Flying Circus for today's comedy. After all, it has spawned several movies and innumerable copycats. It followed in the footsteps of the Marx brothers and absurdist comedy, for example Hellzaappopin' (1941) and unleashed talent in the comedy world and opened new fields of entertainment.The only criticism i might have is that it created a safe haven for semi-talented individuals who make whatever they want a name it comedy, in the similar way that surrealism influenced mainstream art of the twentieth century.

    When I watched Fawlty Towers, I heard about John Cleese starring in a comedy sketch series called Monty Python's Flying Circus. What's my opinion on this TV Series? I think it's fantastic! While the humor is strange(in a comical way), this show never ceases to entertain me or have me laugh so hard, my stomach hurts. It also features hilarious animated shorts made by the great Terry Gilliam. John Cleese, along with other famous members of the Monty Python troupe, have filled me with laughter every step of the way. Two of my favorite skits that have me rolling on the floor laughing is the Lumberjack Song(Where a guy goes from singing about being a lumberjack to singing about wearing women's clothing) and the Minsitery of Silly Walks(I died laughing at that skit).Bottom Line: I am now a fan of Monty Python's Flying Circus with its strange yet witty humor, great shorts, and an excellent performance by John Cleese and friends.

    For me as well as for a great many other semi nerdy and amateur intellectual kids, Monty Python's Flying Circus was more than just another comedy show. It was a part of our academic and intellectual development, because mind you, Monty Python is by no means your everyday slap stick/fart/pie in the face humor (although they do feature an advanced and hilarious pie in the face sketch!) and is definitely not enjoyed by "the masses". They have served as an inspiration to many comedians and been copied by numerous others and will continue to be watched and enjoyed forever, in spite of the fact that the show is from 1969!
