Monty Python’s Supermen can’t repair bicycles?

Bicycle Repair Man

I’ve been watching the Monty Python team perform their extra special blend of surreal comedy for 30 years now but I have to confess that I’ve not seen every episode of the Flying Circus TV show. This is a good thing though, as it allows me to see some of their sketches with fresh eyes and it’s always a delight when this happens – like today, when I stumbled across the Bicycle Repair Man sketch. Enjoy!

  1. I absolutely love this skit! It is my favorite Monty Python sit of all time. In fact, this skit was the one that made me a permanent Monty Python fan. I first saw this back when they were broadcasting Monty Python in the late 1970’s and it was months before I could see the Bicycle Repair Man sit again. I couldn’t get enough of it.
