My second post of the night. In case you couldn't be bothered to look at the references I appended...there really was a "Bruce." Monty Python Live at Drury Lane A slightly different version of the sketch is recorded on Monty Python Live at Drury Lane. The identity of "Bruce" is Lachlan Chipman, Professor of Philosophy and friend of Michael Palin. Chipman was the founding Chairman of the Philosophy Department at the University of Wollongong. David Ritchie, Portland, etc.
