I need help and I need it right away.
There was a skit where John Cleese is interviewing a guest and he keeps saying "Shh!"
He explains this to his increasingly flustered guest as a nervous tic (which is quite a tic for an interviewer to have). His guest complains that it makes him feel he should stop talking, so Cleese sympathizes and devises an elaborate gesture that will indicate when he wants his guest to actually stop. At one point he makes this gesture and his guest immediately ceases his meandering speech. Cleese then apologizes and says he meant to go "Shhh!"
It's a hilarious skit and I can't remember if it's from the "Flying Circus" series, the "Policeman's Ball" films, or some other venue. It was definitely Cleese and the guest (I think) was either Michael Palin or Terry Jones.
If anyone remembers this skit, please point me in the right direction - and if it's from the tv series, tell me which episode or which dvd (I have them all).

Thanks in advance!

I know of *a* version of this skit... but im not sure if it's the one you're looking for... JC is the guest and rowan atkinson is the interveiwer.

I remember seeing it on youtube, although now I cant find it...

although I have it on my computer.
I could upload it if you want.

That's a great sketch. Almost totally forgot about it...
