  1. I love Monty Python- the Holy Grail is one of my favorite movies. I’m very glad that the Independent Film Channel decided to dedicate a week to them.
    And of course their advice is so practical!

  2. It has been said that much of our modern sketch comedy owes a huge debt to Monty Python. I still feel that my favorite sketch is the Parrot sketch. Especially in that it deals with the issue of consumers making uninformed decisions and expecting restitution for the consequences. What is your favorite sketch?

  3. I’ve been familiar with Monty Python since I was in grade school and I think that much of our current entertainment owes a great deal to the series. I think this is a fun and interesting way to show appreciation for a show that has made many of us smile. 🙂
