MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS - THE COMPLETE BOX SET

Monty Python's Flying Circus makes absolutely no sense (in a good way). It is a British TV sketch comedy show considered a classic among connoisseurs. The six members of the Monty Python troupe, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam, make us laugh with a type of humor that you rarely see elsewhere: nonsensical humor. Each episode is unstructured, eccentric, silly, chaotic, random, and surreal. But most importantly, it's funny. Think of the show as Surrealism and Dadaism crashing into your TV set.

If you watch the show expecting some kind of typical order, you won't understand the appeal. You have to think of the show as like a dream. How many times have you dreamt of something, recall it upon waking up, and laugh at how unrealistic and absurd it is? This is why the humor of Monty Python is best described as surrealistic humor. The concepts in the sketches make no sense in reality, however they can be funny if you just go with the flow and see where it takes you. The sketches often transition smoothly from one to the next by little steps, like a train of thought. Sometimes, there's an abrupt change, which would be considered relatively unusual on the show.

The series won (and was nominated for) the following awards:
