Top 10 Monty Python Sketches/Scenes

There are so many priceless ones. But which one is the funniest?

The Top Ten

1 Ministry of Silly Walks

Both this skit and "The art of not being seen" are the funniest in my opinion. - michaelhughes

2 Monty Python and the Holy Grail: Witch Accusation Scene

Witches burn. Wood burns. Witches are wood. Wood floats. A duck floats. Therefore, if you weigh the same as a duck, you are made of wood, meaning therefore, you are a witch. - errrr

3 The Knights of Nee

After watching this movie, I kept saying "Ni", it's like a disease, not really. This entire film was a comedy classic, but this was my favourite part. "YOU WILL FIND US ANOTHER SHRUBBERY! But don't make it too high, so we can have the two at different levels, and a nice little path down the middle. And after you find the shrubery, you will cut down the tallest tree in the forest, with a herring. " You've gotta love this!

"You must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest with... a herring! "
"We will do no such thing! "
"Aww, please? "

4 Dead Parrot Sketch

He's not pining. He has passed on. This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired to meet it's maker. This is a late parrot. It's a stiff. Beret of life. It rests in peace. If you didn't nail him to the perch, he'd be pushing up daisies. He's off the twig. He's kicked the bucket. He shuffled off the mortal coil. Ran down the curtain and joined the bleeding choir invisible. THIS is an Ex-Parrot!

He's pining for the Fords!


Easily the best. - dudesterravensfan

9 The Argument Clinic

Philosophy turned on its side and spanked. Just enough physical comedy to set you up for the brainy side. Always the best stuff they did. Always love the Cockney criminal explaining how his boss use "sarcasm" on him. His look of humiliation and fear are hilarious stuff as he paints his boss as horrific. - mgenet

10 The Black Knight

What are you going to do bleed on me. ha classic

The Contenders

11 Spam

If anyone tells me they got this song out of their head, I'll eat my own monitor. - ArchAces

12 Bed Shop
13 Always Look on the Bright Side of Life
14 Deadliest Joke

This is so funny, I also really like the Knights Who Say Ni and Upper Class Twit of The Year. The comedy in this makes me laugh every time I watch it. The refilmed version in "And now for Something Completely Different" is somehow even better!

15 Spanish Inquisition

I didn't EXPECT this one to be so far down the list. Come on, it should be in the top ten.

It's always hard to choose a favourite sketch when it comes to Monty Python, who seem to ooze brilliance into everything they make. But, when it comes down to it, the Spanish inqusition had me laughing for weeks!

16 The Upper-Class Twit of the Year

Simon has just run himself over! Freakin sweet. Should be on top. A pure Monty Python classic

My personal favorite part is the difficult wall of matchboxes. - Knucklewood

Funniest thing I've ever seen and I love the skits and movies

17 Life of Brian: Brian meets the P.F.J. at the forum

LORETTA: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.

18 The Meaning of Life: Mr Creosote vomiting

Better.. better get a bucket.

19 How Not to Be Seen

Though I have not watched the original one, I think the "And Now For Something Completely Different" is amazingly hilarious!

20 Stoning (Life of Brian)
