Scene of the Fish Slapping Dance

Scene of the Monty Python Fish Slapping Dance.

Location: Teddington Lock, London

Description: Scene of Monty Python's Fish Slapping Dance sketch featuring John Cleese and Michael Palin in safari outfits at the side of a canal lock.

At first both are facing each other and standing perfectly still. Light-hearted music then begins to play and Palin performs a simple merry dance which consists of dancing towards Cleese, lightly slapping him in the face with one or two small fish, and returning to his starting spot. After Palin does this four times he returns to attention, at which point the music stops, Cleese gets out his fish - a much, much larger one - and clobbers Palin around the head with it, causing Palin to fall several feet into the water.
