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

Look, get out, all of you. Go on. Get out! Get out!
I beg your pardon?
I'm turning you all out! I'm not having my house filled with filthy perverts. Now look, I'm giving you just half a minute then I'm going to call the police, so get out!
I don't much like the tone of your voice.

In episode 23 "Scott of the Antarctic," the opening segments take up so much time that the theme song doesn't play until about 20 minutes into the show. See more »
A staged and carefully crafted presentation of absurdity and chaos
The original sketch comedy show that has a very deserved cult following.
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.
