Yes, just a mere 15 years before I was born Monty Python was airing their offbeat version of humor in the UK. Monty Python was actually a huge cultural and comedic experience for me. So much that I remember the first time I saw The Holy Grail. I had already gone to bed and my sister came up to our room and told us we had to watch the funniest movie she’d ever seen. I was pretty sleepy so a lot of the concepts were not registering as funny, but just plain confusing. Why were they pretending to be on horses, and arguing about coconuts? And thanks to GRPL I was able to rent out the VHS of their hilarious tv show Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
Some of my favorite skits, in case you were wondering:
