Julius Caesar on an Aldis lamp is a sketch that appears in "The Spanish Inquisition," the fifteenth episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Synopsis[]

Julius Caesar (Graham Chapman) faces a soothsayer who puts an Aldis lamp to his face and starts flashing a warning. Caesar is then stabbed in the back by numerous assassins in silence, and as he stumbles to the ground, he produces a lamp and flashes it, spelling out 'Et tu brute?' before collapsing.
