Visit the very lovely Miss Carol Cleveland at the also lovely and handsomely crafted website

Carol Cleveland, the dazzling and talented Pythoness who played the glamorous female roles in the Flying Circus shows and Python films, has launched her own website,

Carol invites fans to 'step into her world' where she tells all about her career, her current whereabouts, and of course her days with Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Finally fans get to hear more from the seventh Python herself. “When I looked my name up on the net,” Carol told PythOnline recently, “and saw myself (or some brunett PERPORTING to be myself!!) sandwiched in the middle of a PORN SITE....I decided it was time to take action!!”

Carol's site, which launched November 20, offers tons of downloadable goodies, including rare photos (of Carol and the Pythons), artwork, and articles. In addition to Carol's CV and biography, you can also read about her one-woman show (the autobiographical and very funny Pom-Poms Up!) as well as an entire page dedicated to her years with Python. And of course, Carol's latest projects are summarized and lovingly frosted with glucose by Carol herself!

“I've been very busy doing theatre work over the past few years,” Carol tells us. “The highlights have been playing a 75 yr. old (lots of make-up!!) in an extensive tour earlier this year of Five Blue Haired Ladies Sitting on a Green Park Bench, The Front Page at Chichester Festival Theatre last summer, and playing Miss Hannigan in the musical Annie the year before.”

Currently Carol is in rehearsals for the Christmas pantomime version of The Wizard of Oz in which she reprises one of her favorite roles, the wicked witch of the West. The show opens 12th December at The Hall for Cornwall in Truro, Cornwall. As for the new year, expect perhaps further performances of Pom-Poms Up! and “I would LOVE to join Eric at some time in one of his stage tours around America!”

Carol would love all Python fans to visit her at and to stay tuned for future Carol news. “Just say 'Hi' to all the python fans and apologize for my absence from Pythonline for a while. Tell them I died but I'm back...with a vengence!”
