Colin "Bomber" Harris vs Colin "Bomber" Harris
is a sketch from Monty Python's Fliegender Zirkus.
It was later performed live, included on the album Live at Drury Lane
and in the concert film Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl
. The sketch was known as a specialty that Python member Graham Chapman
could do while sober.
The name is a reference to Sir Arthur "Bomber" Harris.
The sketch is about a wrestling match, in which Colin Harris (Graham Chapman
) fights himself. As Colin fights himself, a narrator (John Cleese
, with Michael Palin
as MC in the Hollywood Bowl
version) hastily reports the events. The match ends with Colin beating himself by knocking himself out, but will meet himself again in the finals.
