The scene: Dunedin’s Regent Theatre.
The event: University of Otago Capping Show.
The date: Definitely May and either 1975, 76 or 77.
The cast: Jon Gadbsy and someone else whose name escapes me.
The skit: Monty Python’s dead parrot.
Tha parrot hasn’t come back to life, but the skit has been revived because as Keeping Stock points out if you substitute Foreign Minister for parrot and Norway lobster for Norwegian Blue it takes on a whole new meaning.
