I had to go through all of this to make sure that someone included the Four Yorkshiremen.
Thanks BSSC.
It is really universal, Monty Python. We had 5 different countries and 4 different decades represented on the bus, and all of us could quote our favorite bits from the show or the movies. Unquestionably the funniest stuff ever. I'm a particular fan of Yellowbeard, which, if you haven't seen it, is absolutely hilarious.
And to be fair, Michael Palin's Around the world in 80 days has quite a few moments of humor in addition to being a fantastic travel tale.

Another of my favorites, "Help help I'm being repressed..." (from Holy Grail).




So many funny lines in that sketch, and all in under three minutes. Inspired.

So true, ER Eddie!

My favorite line is "well, I didn't vote for you" Cracks me up every time.

Yeah. My favorite is the way it ends -- "Come see the violence inherent in the system. Help, help, I'm being repressed ... oh, what a give-away." I just love that, for some reason.

I also really like, "Listen, strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government" and then those phrases that follow ("watery tart," etc.). But the whole thing is really clever, from "I'm 37, I'm not old" all the way through.

This part of MPATHG is the best part of the movie.

As far as movies, I've only seen "The Meaning of Life", so I was not familiar with this sketch.

This is MP at it's finest IMO - when they do that thing where the common man is actually superior in knowledge to the higher-ups, it just cracks me up, and of course there is a grain of truth to it, as in all good comedy.

Yeah, they're sitting there piling up mud, talking about anarcho-syndicalist communes (had to check the subtitles on that one). Good stuff.

ERD50, you should try to find Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I think you'd like it. Imo (and most others, I think), it's their best movie.

I think David (OP) has been properly introduced to Monty Python at this point. You unlocked the floodgates, David.
