 Post subject: Recycled Sketches : Wots been dun before ?
 Post Posted: Tue Mar 13, 2007 7:10 pm 
Some of the sketches performed on Monty Pythons Flying Circus,and on subsequent albums were recycled versions of good old sketches done on previous shows in which various Python appeared.
Examples are the 'Four Yorkshiremen' and the 'Bookshop' sketch which originally appeared on 'At Last The 1948 Show'

Shall we have a run down of the 'recycled' sketches,just for nostalgias sake ?

I'll leave you lot to do the research.

.. well,ok ... I guess I could do a bit. I have the DVDs after all.

I think The Parrot Sketch might've been recycled if I remember correctly...

I think you're right, although I can't remember if its on 1948 Show, or I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again. I'll have to check my DVDs when I get home.

Dead parrot sketch was first about a car, see How to Irritate People.

Silly Job Interview was originally for How to Irritate People.

Four Yorkshiremen and Bookshop sketch were originally for At Last the 1948 show, as you already said, later recycled in various other Python projects.

I can't really think of more at the moment.

Thats right. I've got 'How To Irritate People' too although I didn't initially make the link between the car and the parrot.

I thought the 'fussing' sketch with Connie Booth was good, but the one with Michael Palin as the Indian waiter was really lame ... probably the most awful thing hes done. I bet he's embarrased about that one now.

Thanks for your input Yannik.

The oldest recycles sketch is the Custard Pie sketch (aka the Humour lecture or the Jape sketch) that they did in the Live at Hollywood Bowl show (and some of the Amnesty gigs). It was written my Michael and Terry J when they were at Oxford, then loaned to John and Graham for Cambridge Circus.

Palin must be embarrased about lots of sketches, don't forget the lumberjack song :wink:

I've just listened to side 2 of 'Hastily Cobbled Together ..... ' and come across the inerview with the deep sea diver/accountant and it bought back memories of the original which was about an insurance sakesman.
I had it on 'The Frost Report On Britain' and starred John Cleese (you know,the short one with the bandy legs and a wart on his nose) and David Frost. I thought David was a little weak in a few sketches, (especially 'Unknown Soldier' but was quite good in some.
