Synopsis by Nathan Southern
John Cleese, one of the creative geniuses responsible for fathering the Monty Python comedy troupe, selects 18 of his favorite comic sketches and skits from the five-year U.K. run of Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969-1974), in the home release Monty Python's Flying Circus: John Cleese's Personal Best. Included here are the sketches "Self-Defense Against Fresh Fruit," "Exploding Version of the Blue Danube," "Fish-Slapping Dance," "Upper-Class Twit of the Year," and 14 others. Also featured are original sketches made by the comedian himself expressly for this release. John Cleese's Personal Best is one in a series of six volumes, each containing the favorite segments of a different Monty Python troupe member.
