The troupe’s irreverent humour — a blend of satire, surrealism and silliness — helped revolutionize British comedy.
Jones and the rest of Monty Python made an appearance on Global News, then known as BCTV, back in June 1973 before a live show at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
The troupe took part in a series of improvised “man on the street” interviews, in which John Cleese implores Prince Philip to “come clean about his toupee.”
BCTV weatherman Norm Grohmann then conducts an interview with Monty Python that quickly deteriorates into bedlam.
