You may have heard of the unicycling bagpiper of Portland (also known as the Unipiper), Brian Kidd. In a new video, the multi-talented performer dresses up like King Arthur from Monty Python and the Holy Grail as he rides his unicycle and plays the flaming bagpipe. He is accompanied by his own version of the coconut-clapping Patsy, who is sure to follow at a safe distance. In the background, a sign is visible saying 'Keep Portland Weird.' The Unipiper certainly does his best.

The latest stunt from Brian Kidd is well timed, given the upcoming Monty Python reunion shows in London. While the O2 Arena performances will be the last from the British comedy troupe, at least we have the Unipiper who will keep their comedy alive.
