Hi everyone.. I'm a big Monty Python fan from Germany and have just recently registered.
As I do love Monty Python so much, i've decided to give a little talk about them in my english-class. Now I've got an important question. I was looking for the answer for some time but I couldnt find out.

Why did monty python actually split up?
Was there an argument between the members or was it just looking for a new challenge? Or was it something comletely different? :)

I hope you can tell me.. I won't dare to address to my audience in class without knowing why monty python no longer exists!
thanks a lot!

welcome, ind1.


i'm personally not sure if anyone exactly knows the reason they split up, but i'd say one of the factors was the members wanting to pursue their individual careers.

another thing may have been that they were just getting tired of doing Monty Python. or they could have just run out of ideas.

like i said, i'm not sure if anyone knows the exact reason they split, but the above reasons could all be part of it. or, none of them could be.

i just remembered john cleese saying in an interview that to him it is a miracle people still are not bored of monty python.. thus your second argument could be rather true.

ok thanks so far.. apparently they've decided to separate and search the holy grail individually :) i think i'll name this the major reason. thanks!

John Cleese decided at the end of Series 3 that he wanted to move on to new projects. He's said that he felt that they were getting a bit "same-y".

By the time series 4 was in the pipeline, the regime at the BBC had got a lot more strict, and they weren't offered many episodes. I think to some extent they took the hint from this.

The Pythons have never really split up - they continued to collaborate on the movies, books and records, as well as various live shows. They also turn up quite often in projects that another member is doing - TG's movies, JC's documentaries etc. I think they just decided that they were going to all move on to new projects rather than try to drag Flying Circus out.

exactly. They didnt actually "split up" as such. but graham's death put an end to all the rumours of a reunion.
