Tell us about Michael on Parky by Dianne on 2 November 2003 9:43am
 
Please do!!

Did Michael talk about anything that we all would be interested in hearing about. His travels . . . are they continuing? I've heard they are over for this series is that true? Anything else?

Well....

First he talked about the liberty bell (the python theme obviously!) and then talked about Monty Python some more and the BBC giving them the first series. He spoke about how they came up with the name Monty Python and said they came up with names such as: "the toad elevating show" (or something like that!) and "the horse spoon and the bucket". But the bbc said it had to mean something! Michael wanted to call it "Gwen Dibley's flying circus" just because he read the "Gwen Dibley" in a magazing and liked the name. John lived in "basil" street (how ironic!) and in John's flat they discussed what to call the show. someone came up with python, eric came up with monty and they all found it funny! Did a great impression of John getting angry! lol. Talked about the dead parrot sketch... eeermmmm then Life Of Brian and showed the ex leper sketch. said the complaining nuns about the life of brian were better publicity than if they dressed up as nun's themselves! said that the beatles used to stop rehearsing just to watch python. he didn't say much about Himalaya- just that he wished he hadn't started it! He also said that while filming the new series on third day he bumped into a fan. There was nothing said about the seires ending Dianne just that he was on a break.

phew.... think that's most of it! lol

like sophie-louise say's they did'nt cover much about his on going Himalayan adventure, just a little bit at the end. I think he was there more to plug the Python book for the Christmas market.

There was sadly no news about the Himalayan series. Emma Thompson looked very happy to be `held down` by MP when Rod Stewart appeared!

Michael said he was on a break form filming the himalayan series

when asked by parky did he see any fans while fiming??
his reply was oh yes he was just climbing up one part of the steep mountain and he heard "OH I AM SUCH A FAN OF YOURS!!"" (that had to be in caps cos it was an american lady who spoke and you know how they shout!! giggle) Michael said he smiled and as they passed each other the lady said to her friend "ERIC IDLE" !!!!!!!!!!!!!

michael then grinned and talked some more to parky about mpfc

Well, I've lived in America all my life, and I must say, I resemble that remark!

The interview that showed up on BBC America a few weeks ago is different. Don't know if it's an older or more recent interview...

In the one I saw, he talked about:

*how the camel he was served in Africa for 6 days in a row had finally gone bad!
* how he'd revisited the site of his crucifixion from LoB
* about George Harrison a bit - George driving him into town in one of his sports cars in 200 mph spurts
* on serious note, how he was in Borneo when Mrs. MP called to tell him she had a brain tumor
* how the vocational guidance counselor at his school told EVERYONE to go to work at the glass factory!

Parky asked him what he's looking for in all these travels, and MP said, "Employment, actually."
