INTRODUCTION TO

MONTY PYTHON

Perhaps some of you wonder what Monty Python is. Well, Monty Python is, as we doctors call it, "a comedy group", containing five British comedians: John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Graham Chapman, and one American: Terry Gilliam.

The first thing they did together revolutionised worldwide television comedy. It was "Monty Python´s Flying Circus"! Besides "Flying Circus", they also made some films, which all revolutionised worldwide cinema comedy. The records they made revolutionised worldwide record comedy and the stage shows revolutionised worldwide stage show comedy.

One can say that Monty Python really revolutionised most of the things they tried.
