A satirical British comedy group consisting of Michael Palin, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Terry Jones, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam. It is full of simultaneously intelligent and infantile humour, the likes of which can send you to the floor convulsing. It has produced a television series, 'Monty Python's Flying Circus,' along with four movies: The Meaning of Life, The Holy Grail, And Now For Something Completely Different and my personal favourite, Life of Brian.
My LTW is to see Monty Python perform live.

a group of brits with the funniest dry humor ever.
often people who claim to love them have only seen the holy grail, even though the flying circus is way better.

An excellent and rather hilarious sketch show which offers a look into a very interesting time period in Britain, crossdressing, and a glance into the minds of those who are very comfortably walking the line between genius and insanity. However, the humor of this has been diminished as of late by all the 12 year old nerds quoting it in bad English accents

A TV Show of actors who do the most random things on the shows. Also made 3 movies: "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", "Life of Brian", and "The Meaning of Life". Very good stress booster.

A group of hilarious British chaps, whom created such astounding comedic works as "Monty Python and The Holy Grail", "Life of Brian", "Monty Python's Meaning of Life", and the 45 episode Tv series called "Monty Python's Flying Circus" that first aired in On BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) in 1969 then in the U.S. five years later.

Made up of six men, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Micheal Palin, Terry Gillam, Terry Jones, and Graham Chapman (deceased). All of these men are exceedingly good actors and have brilliant comedic minds. Now all around there 60s or 70s.

The greatest comedy troupe I've ever seen. Michael Palin, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Eric Idle make up the group. They're all still alive except for Graham Chapman. Famous for the Flying Circus and the Holy Grail, but there's also the Meaning of Life and Life of Brian.
