Monty Python’s Flying Circus

I love the madcap, quirky challenges provided by the Three Muses and have chosen to journal a page about Monty Python’s Flying Circus. I don’t think any other group of comedians in the UK has come close to their very odd, wacky style of humour. You were/are either a fan or not – just like marmite – love it or hate it!

"Hello Mrs Cut-Out!"

I remember my Mum used to try and enjoy it with me, but being of German origin, I think most of it went straight over her head! My favourites were Mrs. CutOut and of course Eric 2-sheds Jackson! I can even still sing The Australian Philosophers’ Song, hmmmm!! I was lucky enough to see the entire cast perform live at an Amnesty International event, back in 1979/80… those were the days!!

    Oh those WERE the days Rosie, and Mrs Cut Out was a hoot …… get it …… hoot! Monty Pythons Flying Circus was definitely responsible for my quirky sense of humour and even more quirky art. You have illustrated Mrs Cut Out beautifully and made me so happy to remember those genius ground breakers in comedy. Standing O from me.

  10. Oh, Wosie Wo, you never cease to entertain me! This is rollicking good fun, as only you can do. (And sometimes it’s hard for ME to remember I’m a grandmother!)

  11. It’s fabulous, Rosie. Unfortunately, Monty Python went over my head when I was young, but I’ve seen some of the Amnesty show on TV and it was a hoot – you were so lucky to be there!

  13. I can still sing “The Lumberjack’s Song” so, Rosie, I am a fellow Monty Python tragic. My adult “kids” despair of all the Monty Python one-liners I use all the time.
    Your “bird” is certainly odd but in the nicest possible way, of course. I love how you have approached this challenge. It is unique and funny and so darned clever. Take a bow.
