Monty Python’s Flying Circus (also known as Flying Circus or during the final series just Monty Python) is a BBC sketch comedy program from the Monty Python comedy team. The show was noted for its surreality, risqué or innuendo-laden humor, sight gags, and sketches without punchlines. It also featured the iconic animations of Terry Gilliam, which were often sequenced or merged with live action.
