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.

Many people may be disappointed with the material on the program because it is not typical Python. People need to take into account that this is before the incorporation of Idle, Jones and Gilliam. Also, it is a precursor for what was eventually to become one of the funniest sketch comedy shows ever broadcast.
