Happy Birthday to John Cleese who turns 74 years old today! If you don’t know who he is, John Cleese is a British comedian most famous for his role in the sketch group Monty Python. Monty Python had a show on British television called Monty Python’s Flying Circus for several years and made several hilarious movies including Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Life of Brian. For those of you who may not be familiar with John Cleese or Mont Python, we’ve put together some of our favorite sketches that feature John Cleese.
In this sketch from Mont Python’s Flying Circus, Cleese plays the head of the Ministry of Silly Walks. If only America had such a glorious institution.
We’ve all probably had some horrible experiences with job interviews, but hopefully none this bad. It would be fun to be in a position to actually torture someone like this though.
This is a scene from the movie Life of Brian. We’re betting that d*** jokes were just as funny during the time of the ancient Romans as they are today.
Do you find yourself bored with your buddies and girlfriend because you don’t argue enough? Probably not, but if you were, you could always try to start your own argument clinic.
This is another great scene from Life of Brian. Let us all thank Jehova for blessing on with John Cleese on his special day.
