A comedy panel game in which being Quite Interesting is more important than being right. Sandi Toksvig is joined each week by four comedians to share anecdotes and trivia, and maybe answer some questions as well.
The irreverent Monty Python comedy troupe present a series of skits which are often surreal, bawdy, uncompromising and/or tasteless, but nearly always hilarious. Written by

The Pythons were inspired by Spike Milligan and The Goon Show more than anything else, but they wanted their humour to be impossible to categorise, so the term Pythonesque was coined to describe it. Terry Jones jokingly said that the fact they'd inspired a new word in the dictionary shows how miserably they had failed. See more »
Depending on the content of the individual shows, the credits were changed accordingly, often appearing in anagrams (Tony M. Nyphot's Flying Risccu), with a different title completely (The Buzz Aldrin Show) or with strange additions to the names of the cast and crew, such as various foodstuffs, sex toys and political gambits.

A staged and carefully crafted presentation of absurdity and chaos
The original sketch comedy show that has a very deserved cult
It's... hilarious. It's... absurd. It's... very hard to describe,
because it is so freakin' random! Almost every little sketch takes such
bizarre twists and turns into something completely else that you'll
literally never see it coming. Terry Gilliam's innovative, and equally
absurd, animations are no different in their appearances between
sketches. Often serving as transitions, but really this is just one
side-splittingly funny compilation of sheer absurdity.
Poking fun at just about everything that you could possibly imagine -
talk shows, courts, daily life, the Spanish Inquisistion, the military,
etc... - and it is all put together in a way no less random. Skits end
unexpectedly, some shots are used many times, random characters appear
only to speak one line, and all that makes for what is quite possibly
the best crafted presentation of absurdity and chaos ever made. 10/10
Not Rated and suitable for most viewers, but very cautious parents will
undoubtedly object to the crude humor.
