Monty Python Live, Monty Python Dating, and me.

Monty Python Live!

I seem to have become the unofficial unpaid spokesperson for Monty Python!

If you're a Monty Python fan and single, join my Monty Python Dating Facebook Group!

To recap, I won the BFI's Monty Python competition - part of the London Film Festival 2012 - which was promoting Graham Chapman's "A Liar's Autobiography". Ever since then, according to the media, I am the biggest Monty Python fan.. period.

The Sun
Then the Monty Python Live O2 shows were announced, and the media came after me! I was interviewed by six BBC radio stations, including BBC Radio 2 (The Jeremy Vine Show), as well as the Scottish Sunday newspaper, The Scotman, and my local newspaper, The East Grinstead Courier.

The Sun
Because of all the hype now whipped up by the Pythons, I then decided that it was the right time to launch my Monty Python Dating Facebook Group. I've always felt that a healthy interest in Monthy Python is an excellent basis for a happy relationship. (So why did I marry someone who hated Monty Python back in 1995 then? Don't ask... The marriage lasted nearly 15 years. That's not bad, considering!)

Wow! This sort of coverage is somewhat astounding! You must be on their "magic Rolodex," as we used to say in the journalism biz.

So how is the dating site going so far?
