Funny / Monty Python


  • "Radio Shop", from the newest CD edition of 'The Monty Python Matching Tie and Handkerchief'. Not only the unnecessarily verbose prose the customer constantly spews, or his attempts to get enough argument that he indeed bought his radio at the shop, or the seller's simple not-caring-that-much for him, but most of all the ending, which has to give this sketch one of Monty Python's coolest characters, especially combined with Chapman's portrayal. Part of why it is so hilarious is that it's been so put off, and so, spoiler tags!

    Mr. Armageddon: Better luck next incarnation. Mr. Fang, let us leave!
  • From the Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album, "I Bet You They Won't Play This Song On The Radio". Doubly hilarious because although it's supposedly filthy and unbroadcastable, you can play it to children.
  • The Bishop on the landing sketch was especially hilarious when it was performed Live at the Hollywood Bowl due to a number of technical malfunctions and the performers (Jones especially) repeatedly cracking up.
  • John Cleese's eulogy for Graham Chapman. Really.

  • The final words of One Down (Five to Go), somewhat masked by what comes beforehand:
