Monty Python's Flying Circus is the first album produced by the Monty Python troupe, released in both the UK and US in 1970, with the US version featuring a back cover slightly different from the original UK version. It features newly recorded versions of sketches from the first Monty Python's Flying Circus television series. Next to the television show itself, the album was the first piece of media the Pythons released
Monty Python's Flying Circus was the first comedy album by Monty Python, released in 1970 by BBC Records. It collects sketches that first aired on the Monty Python's Flying Circus television series and changes some details.
The vast majority of the Python catalog can be found on CD, and this title graced the medium for a very brief time in the mid-'80s as part of the BBC's Audio Visual International series. While all of the characters may not be as fully-formed - such as the sincere and butch Chapman persona used in "The Visitors" - this is a worthwhile find, if not a somewhat compulsory primer for all enthusiasts.
The Monty Python players make their mark with a winning mix of wit, ingenuity, and brilliant timing - and a penchant for mockery and cross-dressing. 31m. Mozart presents famous deaths.

But Monty Python's Flying Circus subverts all expectations with their trademark surreal humor. 30m. For quicker service, a housewife chooses death. The Ministry of Silly Walks fields a grant applicant. The crimes of the Piranha Brothers are recalled. 2. The Spanish Inquisition.

The very first series of 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' had come to the end of its original run just four months before the BBC rushed this album into production. Despite designing the iconic cover artwork and even cropping up as an extremely camp unwanted guest in the Visitors sketch, it was a five man outfit back then. The one woman, Carol Cleveland, is reassuringly on hand to be shocked, seductive or sedate as and when required
