Yeah it's a great show.

My fave sketch is probably Ministry of Silly Walks or the one where the guy has the longest surname in the world, can't remember the exact name of it.

Life of Brian and the Holy Grail are awesome too.

I love that.

I do like all Monty Python sketches...except the Dead Parrot sketch.

It's full of 'Cleesisms' and 'Grahamisms'. Tiring very fast. Usually I can stand things written by John Cleese or Graham Chapman but it's not all that great. Sure watching a man smash a bird on the counter is amusing but..to put it short the sketch is boring.

Much like the Cheese Shop Sketch...Michael Palin and the little animation at the end redeem that for me.

Also The News for Parrots, The News for Gibbons, Today in Parliament, The News for Wombats, Raymond Luxury-Yacht, Blackmail, the Funniest Joke in the world, Musical mice and Nudge, Nudge are another few of my favourites.

Kings of comedy. The films are good too. I love the Dead Parrot sketch, Cheese Shop, Spanish Inquisition, etc, etc. I also love the Four Yorkshiremen, although technically not a Python sketch. And the Pope sketch banned from broadcast on the BBC from The Secret Policeman's Ball. Fantastic.

Me and my small acting group once won a talent contest doing a scene from the Holy Grail. We were also runners-up in another talent contest performing the Cheese Shop sketch. We were called MMP (Mini Monty Python) but are now defunct since I was not voted in for a second term as Chairman.


This can't end well.

Oh my... favourite sketch...

Cheese shop...? Dennis Moore..? Argument...? Spanish Inquisition...? Piranha Brothers...? English- Hungarian Dictionary...? So many... Oh- both peaks of Kilimanjaro had me in stiches... The best thing ever. Better than Jesus. ;)

PS
And Life of Brian is basically the best comedy ever done. Although there's something about Holy Grail that keeps me laughing even though I saw it about 100 times...

Ni! Ni!
Noo... Noo...

I Love Monty Python, "Argument clinic" & "Deja vu" episodes are some of the better lesser known sketches, Side splitting.
On Another note, I have met Michael Palin. he's from Sheffield, Just like me. it was quite a few years ago, before he did his globe trotting first series "Around the world....". he was a very nice "down to earth" sort of guy.



Joyful the sound

Deja vu- yes, BRILLIANT, forgot that one, CLASSIC! Michael is absolutely fantastic in that one. He's actually my favourite Python of them all... )

Holy Grail "We've got a witch, can we burn her" sketch is brilliant. John Cleese saying "She Turned me into a Newt......(Pause)......I got better" makes me nearly piss myself laughing, every time I watch that, even though I have seen it loads of times.
