Belly Laugh

Blog Post #358

Tonight was a low-key evening. I’m still not feeling 100% so we had an easy dinner (a hearty split pea soup) and settled on the sofa to watch a movie — thank you, Netflix!

After bit of a search, we found an old classic, Monty Python’s And Now For Something Completely Different, one of our favourite comedies from way back when. It was just the thing to take my mind off the last stages of my nasty cold.


Watching the movie, brought back a lot of nostalgic memories and I still find it quite hilarious. Of course, it is extremely silly — but antics of the British comedy troupe never fail to tickle my funny bone!

I thought back to the weekly TV show, Monty Python’s Flying Circus and some of my favourite sketches. Self Defense Against Fresh Fruit, Vocational Guidance Counselor, Hungarian Phrase Book, and the side-splitting Parrot Sketch. All amusing, entertaining and memorable. One sketch that always has me in stitches is the uproarious Argument Clinic.

If you loved Monty Python and the Flying Circus, check out their YouTube channel and watch many of their classic skits. You’ll be rolling on the floor laughing for sure!


Now That’s Funny!

Tonight, John Cleese and Eric Idle, brought their act, Together Again at Last … For the Very First Time, for their last performance of a three-night run in Vancouver.

I loved Monty Python’s Flying Circus, and still watch Fawlty Towers  every now and then, when I’m in the mood for some belly laughs. Needless to say, I was a little bummed that I was unable to attend this performance of the two veteran comedians in what was sure to be an entertaining night of hilarity and dry English humour. Watch the Argument sketch, you’ll see what I mean.


As consolation,  I cheered myself up by watching a couple of episodes of Fawlty Towers and a few of my favourite clips from the Flying Circus tv show that I found on Youtube.

Below is clip of Basil Fawlty taking out his frustration on his car in episode 5, Gourmet Night! (full episode)


And the hilarious clip of Basil giving Manuel an English lesson


Who can forget Monty Python’s  Ministry of Silly Walks?


or the beloved Spam sketch?
