Monty Python’s Flying Circus Is Turning 50!

Happy 50th, Monty Python’s Flying Circus! You don’t look a day over 40!


Break out the party favors and the cake, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” is about to turn 50!

As you may or may not know, American audiences were first introduced to the British comedy troupe right here in Dallas when KERA became the first station in the U.S. to broadcast the series.

As a special early birthday treat here’s a video to help celebrate.

Bill Young, KERA’s VP of television, hosts Tellyspotting, a blog about all things British TV. He’s got more on the big birthday HERE.
