a tip for you in this group

if you dont allready know of them, I strongly suggest you to look into the works of rik mayall and adrian edmondson.
they started out in the eary 80s with a show called the young ones (were none other than terry jones was in one episode) and have been at it ever since.
they were my introduction to brittish comedy and I love them.
and no secret that they are BIGTIME python-fans themselfs.

the_thina at 8:27 am March 10

you know, it was that character that made me get my septum-piercing. ut you cant marry adrian, he is allready married to jennifer saunders, and they are the best celeb-couple in the world

Monty Petra at 9:18 am March 10

Well, I'm marrying the chracter, not the actor, so there we go!

Sure, it's illogical. I don't care. hehehehe.

the_thina at 10:44 am March 10

LemonCurry95: If only you could see the whopping great smile on my face now 8 D That picture's from their Weapons Grade Y-Fronts Tour, isn't it? If you haven't seen that one, it's one of their best live shows, definately worth a watch! Have you seen 'The Dangerous Brothers'? That was a really early comedy act they did on 'Saturday Live'. Here's a video of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-Tpq1PVJzc
