When I Was a Boy, We Didn't Have Internet. We Had To Post Our Stuff On Every Computer Screen With Our Bare Hands

This has been Python Week, but I’ve sort of reached my quota of Python clips. So I will cheat and post a sketch that most people think is Monty Python, but isn’t. The “Four Yorkshiremen” Sketch eventually became part of the group’s stage repertoire, but it was written for, and first performed on, At Last the 1948 Show, which made stars of John Cleese, Graham Chapman, and Marty Feldman. The fourth guy, Tim Brooke-Taylor, never became as internationally famous as the others, but his co-creation of The Goodies made him a notable figure in TV comedy history.
