Okay, this is gonna sound really crazy, but... one of the things I've noticed in Monty Python is a very, very distinct male laugh coming from the audience. Sometimes he's the only one laughing; sometimes he's the one whose laugh you hear the loudest. It's especially prominent in the "Golden Age of Ballooning" and "Is There." In fact, he's the one who's laughing hardest during the end credits of "Is There."

The "laugh" even followed Cleese to some episodes of Fawlty Towers. Does anyone know what I mean? And if so, is there some obscure trivia surrounding it? I'm obsessed to know who he could've been, because I keep wondering if he was just an extremely loyal fan of the Pythons or a crew member working on the set.

I guess it´s just a voice from a tape they added afterwards, when they weren´t filming in front of an audience. But I know which voice you mean.

As far as I'm aware they always filmed in front of an audience.

Maybe it was just a really big fan, or a friend/ relative of someone (maybe JC if you can hear him in Fawlty Towers as well).

Yeah, it had to be a really big fan or friend/ relative because you can hear that guy in so many episodes. Makes me really wonder now! :lol:

BTW, if anyone thinks I've gone insane, lol, here's a link to the part of The Golden Age of Ballooning where you can distinctly hear this guy. I can't imagine who it could've been-- maybe a cameraman or some crew member, because he's so loud. Sometimes he's the only one laughing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqUp3i8CcWo :lol:
