Peter Bergman, 1939-2012

Alternate header: I only read good books, over.

Bergman was the guy who started the whole thing. Bless him for making the world a funnier and perhaps a more humane place.

Bless him, indeed. I could hardly believe my ears the first night I heard them on FM radio. So much of their stuff is even more relevant now than it was back then.

It's interesting that the two funniest comedy troupes to appear in the 60's came from two of the world's most prestigious universities.

You're right that their work has gained resonance as time has gone on. Sometimes eerily so.

Three universities, really. The Pythons had people from both Cambridge and Oxford.
