Sunday Larf – The Undertaker Sketch

The way we were, this one taken from series two of Monty Python, probably the series when it started to attract cult status, shown late on a Monday night if I remember rightly, always a battle with your mother to stay up late and watch as it was school the next day, but what price turning up at school and being the only lad in the class who didn’t know what all the others were talking about.

The bit at the end isn’t quite right though, there would have been no audience left after the first bar of the National Anthem for in cinema’s across the land the very last showing of the night was always terminated by a massed rush for the exits as the first of the end credits appeared so that by the time the National Anthem was played only one old cleaner would be left to stand to attention, broom at sloped arms.
