No Naughty Bits

A Comedy By Steve Thompson

In December 1975, Monty Python's Flying Circus was broadcast coast to coast in the US. It was the Pythons' first time on a major network...but somebody cut out all the naughty bits!

​Undismayed, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam flew to New York to persuade the network to reinstate the cuts - and somewhat by accident, found themselves at the centre of a landmark court case concerning freedom of expression and protection of artistic integrity...

​Inspired by a true story, Steve Thompson's gloriously funny No Naughty Bits investigates the nature of comedy, the operation of censorship, and the complex misunderstanding implicit in the Anglo-American relationship
