Time for some comedy.
Monty Python are a British comedy group consisting of Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin. Jones and Palin met as part of the Oxford Review at Oxford University. Chapman, Cleese and Idle met in the Cambridge University Footlights Review, which resulted in their touring the USA and meeting Gilliam in New York City.
The Pythons wrote and performed on various different television shows with The Frost Report being the 1st show to use the talents of all 6 members. The BBC offered Chapman and Cleese their own TV series and, after a number of chance happenings, all 6 members were again brought together to create Monty Python's Flying Circus which first aired in 1969. They produced 45 episodes over 4 seasons and made 5 feature length movies, as well as a number of albums, books, games, theatre shows and TV specials.
After the original Python series had finished the Pythons all worked on various projects, often collaborating with, or including, other members of the team. They are generally credited with reshaping British comedy and have influenced many comedians that have emerged since.
The Naval Medley was originally recorded as The Penis Song (Not the Noël Coward Song) on the soundtrack of the Monty Python’s Meaning of Life album in 1983. The song was extended with extra verses, renamed to The Naval Medley and released on the 2014 release of Monty Python Sings (Again). The original version is about the delights of owning a penis, using a wide variety of different slang terms and euphemisms for the male member, extra verses were added to describe the joys of having a vagina and having a back-side, also using slang terms and euphemisms, and finishes with the song about the camp soliders. This is a lyrics video so you can sing along with the song.
