“Pre-Python comedy gold!” – The Daily Mail

This ground-breaking, splendidly silly and surreal comedy sketch series, written and performed by John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Marty Feldman, was a major milestone on the road to Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Each surviving episode is presented in this definitive collection.

“This historic, wildly silly series triggered a revolution that changed the face of TV comedy forever.” – The Critical Eye

“Essential viewing for any Python fanatic.” – Variety

“The inspiration for the irreverent sketch comedy that would soon take the world by storm.” – The TVDB
