Monty Python

When George Carlin died, I blogged that he and other 70's comics were like comedy rock stars. Charting albums regularly. Their albums played a big part in growing up in that decade. Monty Python may have played a lesser role, but their albums did help them cultivate its following. The recent, excellent 6 part IFC documentary on Python had a little bit of information on this. Songs played an important role in Python's shows and movies. They didn't sell like Carlin, Pryor, Cheech or Martin, but the College kids who found them were the ones who made Python cult favorites and then later on just plain stars in the U.S.
