Overview
A fathomless source of profound non-sequiturs, from “I’m a Lumberjack, and I’m OK,” to “This is an ex-parrot!” Monty Python’s Flying Circus has supplanted Shakespeare as the British variety act most quoted by people who haven’t actually seen the original show in the original order as it is here. In fact Monty Python is nearly indistinguishable from Shakespeare, except that the lines don’t rhyme and there are very few bodkins or codpieces. There are, however, British accents and men in drag -- two well-known staples of Shakespearean drama. And most of the members of Monty Python’s Flying circus are still alive. So Shakespeare can just piss off.
