October 5, 1969. Not as momentous an occasion as, say, July 20, 1969 or August 15-17, 1969 but it is a date that will live in not only television comedy history, but comedy history. 40 years ago Monday, Monty Python’s Flying Circus hit the airwaves on the BBC. Maybe you remember, maybe you don’t. If you don’t, check this out from the Sunday New York Times Arts & Leisure section. If you do, what a great kick-off to a great week on KERA celebrating these six young lads from Oxford and Cambridge. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite Britcoms before you go as we begin our week-long celebration. Python remembrances? Share.
