In 1969, a revolutionary sketch comedy show staring a troupe of British comedians took the world by storm. “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” is still the most popular sketch comedy show around the globe. In 1970, one of the Flying Circus’ most famous sketches made its first appearance. In “The Ministry of Silly Walks,” actor and co-Python John Cleese performs a series of ridiculous walks on his way to work at the Ministry, where he encounters a young upstart seeking government funding to work on his silly walk. Hilarity ensues.
This week, under the title “Boondogle Studios,” the Python troupe launched its first of what will hopefully be many humorous games, The Ministry of Silly Walks. In it, players control the minister, voiced by Cleese, on an endless runner style obstacle course.
