Hi guys, newbie here!

On the Monty Python Live at Drury Lane record theres a sketch called Secret Service where John Cleese is interviewing Eric Idle and he turns out to russian etc etc

I was wondering if this was a random sketch they wrote for the show or weather it was ever featured in Flying circus? If so what episode?

Any help is very appreciated!

Phill

The Secret Service interview was never in Monty Python's Flying Circus.

A lot of the "new" sketches the Pythons did in the stage shows were originally from pre-Python shows such as "At Last the 1948 Show" (e.g. The 4 Yorkshiremen), "The Frost Report" and even from their college days (e.g. the humour lecture/ custard pie sketch in "Live at the Hollywood Bowl"). I think the Secret Service interview is one of them. Unfortunately, a lot the earlier shows and scripts are missing (esp. the college ones) so it's very difficult to trace it's origins. I think it's unlikely they would have written a single brand new original sketch for the Drury Lane shows.

Will keep searching for the source though.

I don't know, the Daily Llama doesn't mention anything special,
and neither do the extensive notes at SOTCAA. Good luck CF.
