40 Years of Hilarity

In October 1969 a rather modest sketch show debuted on the BBC. The oddly named "Flying Circus" would go on to do for comedy, many believe, what the Beatles did for music.

For indeed, how can we imagine a world without the Parrot Sketch, the Argument Sketch, the Spam Sketch or, my all time favourite, the Cheese Shop Sketch.

Bravo and thank you to the utterly wonderful Monty Python!!
