"I know as much about Durer as I do about a kangaroo’s bum." Michael Palin talks about "a true Python curiosity".

"Fliegender Zirkus is a curiosity and a rare treat. It's packed full with moments of unbrided genius and is as absurd and insane as you'd have any right to expect. These two timeless episodes, ... show the Python team at their most wonderfully ridiculous. ****"
Total Film - Issue 23 December 1998
