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.

Connie Booth's first acting role. She had originally just agreed to play a small part in one sketch, but took on several more roles after the actress who had originally been cast pulled out at the last minute. See more »
I bought this recently on VHS at a Half-Price bookstore and, man, does it really blow you away with it's insane humor.
It is so hilarious and truly creative all at the same time. The title basically speaks for itself. John Cleese hosts and appears in the sketches along with regular Python members Chapman, Palin and his wife/co-star Connie Booth.
I've seen it at least three time and now want to see it again sometime next month.
The only reason I give it eight out of ten stars is because it does go over a little too long, but that's forgivable due to it's overall excellent comedic value.
