Eric Idle And John Cleese Discuss Getting The First Monty Python Series; Working Together

In a vintage Live Talks Los Angeles video, Monty Python veterans Eric Idle and John Cleese discuss some of their days in Cambridge, the odd circumstances around which they and their Python cohorts received their first thirteen-episode series, and a number of other things.

At the time of the recording, Cleese had just published his memoir, So Anyway…, and recalls a time he went on a tour of New Zealand with a comedy show in the mid 1960s. The full video is over an hour, but worth the investment to see how easily Idle and Cleese can still crack each other up.
