What a missed opportunity!

The other night, while watching the first episode of the Monty Python 6-part documentary, Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut), John Cleese revealed that his real last name was Cheese. Yep. Cheese. And that his father didn't change it until John was quite old—he apparently went through school with Cheese as a last name. He's thinking of changing it back—to Jack Cheese...

The documentary is definitely worth catching, for new fans and old. And right after the first episode IFC played Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl, a fun collection of their greatest hits. Many of the routines you may find yourself quoting along happily, but word of warning... some of the songs may stick in your head...
