AT LAST THE 1948 SHOW and DO NOT ADJUST YOUR SET Now Available on iTunes

The Classic Precursors to Monty Python Go Digital

New York, NY — March 12, 2008

DO NOT ADJUST YOUR SET! Tango Entertainment today announced that two brilliant examples of British comedy written and performed by the future collaborators of Monty Python will be available for purchase and download on the iTunes® Store ( beginning March 12, 2008. AT LAST THE 1948 SHOW and DO NOT ADJUST YOUR SET are two historic, wildly silly series that triggered a revolution - changing the face of TV comedy forever. AT LAST THE 1948 SHOW came first and was a breakout success for the then unknown Marty Feldman (The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine and Young Frankenstein) and was John Cleese’s (The Frost Report and Monty Python’s Flying Circus) first real original TV creation as a writer/performer. Monty Python fans now have a chance to see the nascent work of these same writers that went on to pen some of the most hilarious and genre defining British comedy ever written.
Tango Entertainment has partnered with New Video, a leading digital aggregator of independent video content, to bring these highly sought after series to the iTunes Store, the world’s most popular online music, TV and movie store. All nine episodes of DO NOT ADJUST YOUR SET are available for $12.99; all five episodes of AT LAST THE 1948 SHOW are available for $9.95. The shows are $1.99 per episode (US) if bought separately. New Video and Tango Entertainment look forward to expanding their partnership to make more quality content available on iTunes.

“We are tremendously excited and enthused to be partnering with New Video on the debut of this digital launch and look forward to exponentially growing our business with this dynamic partnership”, said Evan Fisher, V.P. Sales for Tango.


Bursting onto the Britain’s small screens in an explosion of outrageous and often surreal sketches, AT LAST THE 1948 SHOW featured John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Marty Feldman and Tim Brooke-Taylor. Produced in 1967, this collection launched the Monty Python Phenomenon and much like the affect of the Beatles on music, the world of comedy has never been the same.


Teatime.1968. In millions of homes in Great Britain something strange was happening. DO NOT ADJUST YOUR SET hit audiences like a wet fish in the face. It was weird, wonderful and above all hilarious. The series combined the writing and performing skills of Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, added a dash of David Jason, a dollop of the legendary Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and a hint of Terry Gilliam. Feast your eyes on the madness and discover how something completely different began.
