In support of a celebration in London July 2014 for the 50th anniversary of
Monty Python – and their final performance together.
Remarkable bird, the Norwegian Blue. Lovely plumage.
“This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s expired and gone to meet its maker! This is a late parrot! It’s a stiff!”
Because if there’s anything that you need to commission a 50-foot fiberglass sculpture to get people who know every word to famous Monty Python sketches to do, it’s to recite the funnier bits of those sketches to anyone within earshot.

The Dead Parrot Routine – Monty Python
Monty Python Final Performance July 2014
The five surviving members of Monty Python bid farewell in their final show at London’s O2 Arena. Eric Idle, John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam, all in their 70s, lead the crowd in a singalong of Always Look on the Bright Side of Life at the end of the show. The group says it is their final performance together after more than 50 years.
