The Ministry of Silly Walks is fantastic! It's the physical comedy aspect of Python. They have a lot of intellectual comedy as well, which of course is genius, but the physical angle is also a huge part. And a tall, gangly John Cleese walking like a looney is priceless. How is this not funny?

It gets me every time!

saw it on graham chapman's personal best, and i thought it was great. just the whole absurdity of it is what gets me.

we did a secret masons handshake! i mean my friend didn't know what i was referring to, but we had been having a conversation about weird handshakes, and so meeting up on the way to media we stopped in the middle of the corridor and did one. can't tell you what it was as it was a secret handshake obviously but the looks on people's faces were priceless!

That sketch is so hilarious! When they meet up on the street and Terry lies down on the sidewalk and.... oh god. HILAAAARIOUS!

As far as Groucho, Harpo and Chico, A Day At The Races, A Night At The Opera and A Night In Casablanca. Horse Feathers and Duck Soup are hilarious too! And Animal Crackers. God, I wish I had those with me too. I have to go home to watch them... boo... And I love the I Love Lucy episode where Harpo comes and they do the mirror thing-- it's so great!
