This brought her to the attention of the production team of Monty Python's Flying Circus. She appeared in 30 of the 45 episodes in the series, plus all four Monty Python movies. Cleveland has contributed on many post-Python projects including the Concert for George and Not the Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy).
