Cheese Shop

The "Cheese Shop" sketch is a famous sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus. It appears in episode 33, "Salad Days."

The sketch is a fairly typical John Cleese set-piece. In essence, John Cleese attempts to purchase some cheese from the cheese shop; unfortunately the proprietor, Mr. Henry Wensleydale (Michael Palin, playing the obstructive shopkeeper to Cleese's irate customer), appears to have not one single variety in stock, not even a morsel of Cheddar cheese, 'the single most popular cheese in the world'.
