John Cleese Brought the Monty Python Character Anne Elk Back for a New Sketch

*Clears throat* Anne Elk has a new theory — but good luck getting her to tell you about it. The Monty Python character, played by John Cleese, made a notable and, until now, singular appearance on Monty Python’s Flying Circus in the sketch “Anne Elk’s Theory on Brontosauruses.” Now, Anne’s got another theory on … something. And whatever it is, it’s a big one. Cleese brought the character back for a new sketch on his YouTube channel, because in this brave new tomorrow, yes, John Cleese communicates comedy via a YouTube channel. While you might’ve hoped for Anne to have gained some clarity in the passing years, she’s got as much trouble cutting to the surely very groundbreaking chase as ever. Check out Anne’s latest insight above, and see tell of her original revelation below.
