Silly Olympics, taken from The Flying Circus.
The Silly Olympics sketch was featured in Episode 1 of two 45-minute Monty Python German television comedy specials, “Monty Python’s Fliegender Zirkus”. First broadcast in January 1972, Episode 1 was shot entirely on film, mostly on location in Bavaria and recorded in German. Silly Olympics was later dubbed into English and included in “Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl” (1980) and “Monty Python Live (mostly) – One Down Five to Go” (2014)
