Well-known Comedy Group Reunites

In a move that has shocked the cricketing world, the legendary comedy troupe, Monty Panesar’s Flying Circus, have to decided to re-form for a hilarious, high-jinks filled tour to Australia.

How it might look

With their legendary slapstick humour and unpredictable shifts in comedic tone, MPFC were in their heyday during the 1990s, when their side-splitting antics, featuring dropped catches, woeful batting collapses and left-field selection decisions left everyone apart from England in fits of hysterical laughter. Over the last few years, however, their appearances have become fewer and further between, last being seen in public in January 2012, with the seminal ’72 all out’ episode.

Among the sketches which the group are hoping to repeat are the ‘Ministry of Silly Running’, featuring Kevin Pietersen (also recently interpreted by Stuart Broad as the ‘Ministry of Silly Non-Walking’), ‘The English Inquisition’, where the team hilariously list their weapons as ‘fear, surprise and ruthless efficiency’, ‘Four Yorkshiremen’ (Bresnan, Bairstow, Root and Ballance) and ‘Nudge Nudge’, where Jonathan Trott repeatedly and predictably nudges the ball into a leg trap. They are also expected to revive the ‘Bruces’ sketch, which sees them attempting to impersonate some Australians.

Also anticipated is the reappearance of the groundbreaking animation, including the sight of the England team getting squashed by a giant Australian cartoon foot, to the tune of the Liberty (Ian) Bell.

Upon announcement of the news, a source within the Australian camp, between scarcely concealed guffaws, said of the current England team’s morale, ‘It has ceased to be. It’s expired and gone to meet its maker. It’s shuffled off the mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible’, before adding, ‘It’s the funniest joke in the world’ and dying immediately.
