Monty Python isnt funny? #wotsofunee

I heard on the radio today that some of the surviving guys from Monty Python are getting back together for some more performances. I have to say that i have never been a fan of Monty Python. Shhhh…I know. I just don’t get it. I have tried..ive watched it and gawped amazed as my fellow watchers roll around the sofas holding onto their bellies.

I have no idea what is funny about it?…i am clearly not entirely british..or insane enough to understand their sort of humour. to me its just not funny…

it got me thinking what do i actually find funny and why and i think largely the comes down to two categories…

a) accidental…as in this type of thing…





b) observational…i used to think ( back in the day) that Eddie Izzard was perhaps the funniest guy i have ever watched. Me and the now OH used to watch his DVD’s before we got engaged and literally not be able to move for laughing. I even went and saw him live. The only comic i have ever seen live. So thats quite something. Now..he has gone a little bit strange and a bit too hollywood. But there are a few others that have taken over for me and some of my favourites are:

    I think all those are hilarious! I have the sense of humour of a 7 year old boy, clearly. I still laugh at farts!

    I live all those. I’ve heard Eddie Izzard is amazing live so I want to watch him one day. I lived a few streets away from Peter Kay so love his autobiography as it describes most of my childhood.

    Love Eddie Izzard, and I like some of the Monty Python stuff too, but some of it is completely off the wall! 😀

    I love Monty Python, but am a little worried that their comeback tour may be a little bit shit. Let’s hope not! Interesting that you mention Eddie Izzard – he lists the Pythons among his main comedy influences and actually appeared on stage with them during an anniversary event ten years or so ago. 🙂
