Monty Python announce radio specials for 50th anniversary

They return – it would appear – to a time where no one is the messiah but there is no shortage of naughty boys.

Fifty years after the first broadcast of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, the men who revolutionised comedy have revealed details of events to mark their anniversary in what they dubbed “an increasingly Pythonesque world”.

“Extreme silliness seems more relevant now than it ever was,” the surviving five Pythons added in a statement that also revealed plans by BBC Radio 4 to air new radio specials.

The troupe’s legions of fans of all generations can also look forward to what has been billed as the “first official Monty Python Guinness world record attempt”, which will take place on the anniversary date itself, 5 October.

The record that they will attempt to break is the “largest gathering of people dressed as Gumbys”. A Gumby is a recurring character from Python sketches who has a small moustache, wears a handkerchief on his head, and spectacles, braces, a knitted tank top and wellington boots.



I thought they'd retired permanently after their live shows five years ago? Oh well, they're a much-loved comedy group, so I'm sure plenty of people will be happy to see them back together :) .

Question is, will their brand of humour still resonate with younger audiences?
