Monty Python--ROFL!

Monty Python's Flying Circus--the amazingly funny and influential TV comedy sketch series--debuted on TV the UK in 1969, and soon crossed the pond to the colonies. And wondrous movies followed. Hard to believe it's been 40 years since the start of all the farcical insanity . The laughs are just as fresh today as they were when created.

If you're a Monty Python fan, want to be, or just are interested in finding out about the men behind the comedy troupe, you'll be thrilled to discover the new,original multipart documentary--Monty Python, Almost the Truth, The Lawyer's Cut.

The documentary, shown in entirety recently on the IFC cable Channel, does present snippets from performances, but the real highlight is the focus on the performers. The episodes feature interviews with the surviving members of Python, and honors the 40th anniversary of their debut.

If you like to laugh, if you want to go behind the scenes and discover the real craziness behind the Monty Python phenomenon, look into this series. Place a hold and ensure your turn to laugh and consider. It's--Almost the Truth.
