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
Murray Chapman <email@example.com>
Pillars of society, like doctors, lawyers, politicians, academics, and policemen, were frequent targets for sketches. Graham Chapman was a qualified (but never licensed) physician. John Cleese attended law school. Terry Gilliam majored in political science. Terry Jones and Eric Idle majored in English. Chapman's father was a constable. See more »
Keep in mind that that's just a pat diagnosis made without first obtaining your full medical history.

One episode omits the entire opening sequence of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" in favour of a simple title caption - "The Cycling Tour". See more »
Any episode of Monty Python will reduce one to fits of laughing that will produce bouts of tears that will render the viewer on the ground. Great physical comedy on all parts, but especially John Cleese in the Ministry of Silly Walks sketch, which is his least favorite sketch. Great writing that walks that fine line between genius and silly, and meshes the two. These guys also knew when and how to start end a sketch. Still funny thirty years later, wish the same could be said about Saturday Night Live. Too bad there wasn't some knight who could hit Lorne Michaels with a chicken.
