Re: And now for something completely different
I've adored Python since the '70s, and they are right up there with the hallowed Marx Brothers in comedic brilliance, in my estimation. Their humour (it seems fitting to give it the British spelling) was no less irreverent and much more complex. I'm always quoting them or citing their sketches, including the "Bruce" one just a couple days ago in another thread, and the one about an alien blancmange at Wimbledon and people suddenly turning into Scotsmen, my all-time fave, just the other day, somewhere or other on the board. Other faves are the semiphore version of *Wuthering Heights*, the Vikings singing robustly about Spam, John Cleese as Beethoven trying to compose the 5th Symphony while his "Mrs" (Graham Chapman) is hoovering/vacuuming the carpet and asking inanely what kind of sandwich spread he'd like, and olden-day highwayman "Dennis Moore" sticking people up for their lupins or their lives. Giggle. And the Cheese Shop sketch, and the Dead Parrot sketch, and the "Scott of the Antarctic" movie sketch, and the WWI pilot banter sketch, and the lethal joke sketch, and the Hell's Grannies sketch, and the Upper-Class Twit of the Year sketch...etc., etc., not to mention their hilarious flicks, especially "...Holy Grail". I love it all!!! :-)
