In this mock-documentary, John Cleese narrates a series of sketches on irritation -- types and techniques. Included are parents irritating their children, old ladies irritating movie-goers in a theater, an overly subservient waiter, a car repairman denying obvious car trouble, a party guest hinting for a ride, airplane pilots playing practical jokes on their passengers, and a talk show host who doesn't stop talking.

In this special, John Cleese coins the term "Pepperpot" which means "a certain type of middle-aged woman who uses irritation as a way of life; it's the only thing she's really good at." This is the word for the little old ladies portrayed by Cleese and his colleagues on Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969) See more »
This film from 1968, a year before Python did its first show, is hilarious. It was done by John Cleese, Connie Booth, Graham Chapman, and Michael Palin, all From Monty Python's flying Circus. There Python Genius for comedy shines in this film. Additional material was provided by the hugely funny Marty Feldman. Wile a few of the Sketches are a little slow, many are some of the funniest ever recorded. Some Particularly good sketches are the ones with the old women, the airline one ("The wings are not on fire"), and the last sketch on the tape, to name few. Defiantly worth a look for any Python Fan, or for any one looking for a good laugh.
