A Compendium of 150 Monty Python Sketches

Monty Python Spanish InquisitionMy wife requested that I post a particular Monty Python skit on the site. Well, posting just one Python video is right out!

No, here at One Man’s Institute for the Exceptional Documentation of Silly Time Wasting Videos we have a rule that one shall post no fewer than 150 videos – and the number of videos posted shall be 150.

Therefore, being that my wife is an HR manager and has to interview tons and tons of mackerels, and furthermore since she gets a kick out of Monty Python’s classic Silly Job Interview… RIGHT! On with it then!

(In fact, as I understand it she conducts all of her own interviews in this manner. Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink. Say no more.)

Additionally, in the spirit of being Halibut, I’ve spent a truly silly amount of time sifting through applicants, while wearing pantys and a bra. No I didn’t! Yes – you did! Right. On with it!

  1. Christian says:

    Hey man.

    Here’s a link for the sketch “The Writer’s Son”


  2. Laura says:

    I am trying to trace a Monty Python sketch of a speech given in a church hall. A welcome, I think. The comic effect was created by all the pauses being in the wrong place, altering the meaning of the sentence.
    Please help, I really would very much like to hear thins again.

  3. Brian D. says:

    What is the sketch where the building only stays up if the people believe in it?

  4. Does anyone remember the interview sketch with the plagiarist film maker?

  5. Fred Barker says:

    Any Peruvian Beaver cheese?

  6. Lucy says:

    I can watch Monthy Python all day long! Great list!

  7. Andrew says:

    I can’t find any of those broken videos as the Interweb gives me one of my heads. So I have stuck blue tack and fish parts to my neighbour’s car instead. I hope this helps.

  8. Pkauction says:

    Wow this must of taken some time, I was just ploughing through the site when I came accross this. I love monty python, thanks John. P.S my wife is a big fan also, so thumbs up from her.

  9. Brian Friel says:

    I love Monty Python! I was just telling some of my friends about this page a few nights ago. We probably spent an hour on here just watching classic Monty Python skits. They have been playing The Meaning of Life recently on Cinemax or Encore and it is one of those movies that I have to watch every time it is on. I love the scene where they sing “Every Sperm Is Wasted”. They could never do a scene like that today. It is so incredibly wrong on so many levels. They have all of these little kids singing about God striking them down for each sperm that can’t be found. Priceless!

    John Cleese is one of my favorite actors in comedy. He is not everyone’s cup of tea so to speak, but he makes me laugh all the time. I miss those guys. The Holy Grail is one of the go to movies we have when we have a card night that involves a lot of alcohol. Even the people that say they don’t like Monty Python find themselves laughing hysterically throughout the movie. Maybe it just becomes funnier when you or drinking or maybe they don’t really despise Monty Python as much as they say they do. Either way, I love it!


  10. John says:

    I think that you can see the roots of Fawlty Towers in the more farcical elements of Python.

  11. Ulrich says:

    Late reply to Noel Campbell regarding the Glid of Gloode. This was actually not a python sketch. It was performed on “Not Only, But Also” by Peter Cooke (as the Glid) and Dudley Moore (as the jester who tricks him).

  12. David says:

    My favourite is the dirty fork sketch. I love the over the top reactions from them especially John Cleese. Its the same type of comedy which made Fawlty Towers so funny too.

  13. Tim says:

    wow, I died laughing, very funny!

  14. Steve W says:

    Can anybody remember the sketch about S & M? Something about finding a drawing pin and saving it for later???

  15. Aggie says:

    The Hermit sketch (from Life of Brian, right?) is on MP’s youtube channel.

  16. Dave says:

    Does anyone know the name of the sketch where an old guy (mayor or something) is opening a new hospital wing or similar. He’s wheeled out on a mobile lecturn but he can’t think of anything to say except “um” and “ah” repeatedly?

  17. Rowan Atkinson is great, I love him so much :P

  18. Samantha says:

    These are great, thanks for the list :P. Many of the links are broken now, though, and a few of them are repeats, so I don’t think there ever really were 150 XD.

  19. Kb says:

    Were to find the walking brigade video?

  20. Weyrleader says:

    You repeated two skits:

    40 & 98 – Arthur ‘Two Sheds’ Jackson
    44 & 110 – Johann Gambolputty
