Dressing up as women was always a favourite of the Pythons.
The parrot sketch might actually be the most famous comedy sketch ever!
The Meaning of Life
The Pythons didn't only do tv, they also made movies.In The Meaning of Life, they showed what sex education should be like.
The Mr Creosote sketch from the movie The Meaning of Live is not for the faint of stomach.
Monty Python's Life of Brian
Monty Python's Life of Brian tells the story of a regular man, who against his will gathers a following and is considered the new messiah.
It was considered blasphemous by Christian church leaders and was banned in a lot of towns and even some countries.
Nowadays it is considered one of the most famous movies of all time and it's ending song 'Always look on the bright side of life' has become an anthem known throughout the world.
When Graham Chapman died, John Cleese gave a farewell speech Python style.
