The Sun And Splendour,

in Notting Hill Gate.

I'd spend my lunch there

writing some jokes

off the newspapers,

send them in the taxi.

The next day, I'd come in

and hear my jokes

being told at the bar.

Gilliam wasn't alive then.

He was still in America.

He hadn't made the great odyssey

across the atlantic.

Then Eric and Terry were

asked to do a show

called Do Not Adjust Your Set

by Humphrey Barkley,

And I think they asked,

"We'll do it if my

friend Mike can do it."

Mrs. Johnson, I wonder

if your husband's in.

What do you want him for?

Can he come out and play?

He's just had his dinner.

He's got to sit down an hour

while the food goes down.

But we've got to go in soon.

I can't help that. He was late.

Do Not Adjust Your Set

was a way of doing what you wanted

because nobody was

looking at kids' shows.

The executives weren't

watching this stuff.

You could get away with murder.

I was doing that sort

of thing in the states

and getting nowhere.

When I came to England,

this was like finding people

on the same wavelength.

They spoke the language

better than I did,

but as far as the way the mental

processes were working,

it was-- "We're home."

He came to us on

Do Not Adjust Your Set

with some sketches he brought.

Michael and Terry were

very sniffy to him.

Who is this awful American with

his long haircut coming in?

And I liked him.

He wore this sort of Afghan coat.

It was like a woolly old sheep.

It was love at first sight.

I fell in love with his coat.

I love you.




The Complete And Utter

History Of Britain,

Which nobody saw at all,

was a series Terry

Jones and I wrote.

The whole essence of the

complete and utter histories

was to look at history

As if television

had existed at the time,
