You've gotta see this.

I've seen this mentioned this before once or twice here on RatSkep. But I finally found the complete performance online. I don't know how to embed it, since it's not YouTube, but the link will take you to the video.

If you've seen it, you're probably giggling by now. If you haven't, do yourself a favor and watch it. Very funny. Very worthwhile.

I've seen them live and they're brilliant. I've also seen them doing the 'Complete Guide to the History of America Abridged' - with some American clients - and we were almost literally rolling in the aisles.

Great stuff and if they could reduce it by another hour and twenty eight minutes or so it would be perfect.

Saw this in London at The Criterion years ago and it was hysterical. Seen it again in other places and still as funny. Thanks for the link. :cheers:

I saw both the Shakespeare and the America, and also the Bible. So I win. :grin: Mind you, I'm not sure that any of the 3 original guys were still in it the next time I saw them! Like a good broom, that lasts for years, so long as you change the head and the handle a few times...

Where one becomes many through struggle and strife,
But the Mother of Mysteries is another man's call:
Why is there something 'stead of nothing at all?
