The British comedy group Monty Python has a massive fanbase thanks to their popular movies The Life Of Brian, Monty Python's Flying Circus or Monty Python And The Holy Grail. It seems that Monty Python struck a deal with Youtube / Google to bring lots of clips from their shows to the video portal officially.
The channel currently hosts 23 video clips of which 21 are from Monty Python shows and movies. It is not an immense collection at the moment but it looks as like new videos will be uploaded regularly to Youtube in the future.
Some famous scenes from their movies are already available like the fight with the black knight in the Holy Grail movie or the Biggus Dickus scene in the Life of Brian. So, if you are a Monty Python fan head over to their official Youtube channel to watch the videos there.
Update: New videos have been added to the Monthy Python channel on YouTube. While you won't find hundreds of videos on the channel, you will now find a better selection of videos on there. I'd estimate that about 70 or so videos are now available directly on YouTube.
For 7 years you YouTubers have been ripping us off, taking tens of thousands of our videos and putting them on YouTube. Now the tables are turned. It's time for us to take matters into our own hands.
We know who you are, we know where you live and we could come after you in ways too horrible to tell. But being the extraordinarily nice chaps we are, we've figured a better way to get our own back: We've launched our own Monty Python channel on YouTube.
No more of those crap quality videos you've been posting. We're giving you the real thing - HQ videos delivered straight from our vault.
What's more, we're taking our most viewed clips and uploading brand new HQ versions. And what's even more, we're letting you see absolutely everything for free. So there!
Here are a couple of Monthy Python videos that you found on the video hosting site:
