Monty Python Couples

I recently wrote about Monty Python’s Flying Circus (see SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM!), an English comedy troupe [a group of performers] known as “Okama-no-kyouryu” in Japan. They are probably the world’s most popular comedians.

A recent picture of some of the surviving members of Monty Python dressed as Gumbies, some of their most famous characters. I don’t think the 2 guys on the right are real Pythons.

The Be & Me Gumbies – “My brain hurts!”

You can find out more at The "Official" Monty Python Homepage or All About Monty Python in Japanese.

Writing about Monty Python reminded me of an interesting couple we used to meet every year at the Tin's Hall Halloween party. They were crazy about Monty Python! Every year their Halloween costume was based on one of the Monty Python comedy sketches [a sketch is a short comedy play]. Here are some examples of their costumes…

2000: Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!


2002: Spamalot (Info in Japanese)

2003: The Bishop

You can check out all our Halloween-party photos, plus photos of lots of other events at Be & Me Event Photos. The different event albums are listed on the left side of the page.

You can rent the original Monty Python TV series from big video-rental stores like Tsutaya. You can also rent the following movies…

*** Monty Python and the Holy Grail
(Spamalot is based on this movie)

**** Monty Python’s Life of Brian
(A parody of the life of Jesus Christ! Very hard to find!)

***** Monty Python's the Meaning of Life
(Maybe the easiest movie for a non-fan to watch, however, it’s sometimes very shocking)

***** A Fish Called Wanda
(Not really a Monty Python movie, but written by & starring John Cleese & Michael Palin, 2 of the most talented members. A v-v-v-very f-f-f-funny m-m-m-mooooovie!)
