If you enjoy Sketch Comedy, you have these fine English gentlemen (and one Yankee) to thank. Monty Python's Flying Circus paved the way for any type of sketch comedy that embraces absurdity and pushes boundaries.

Oh dear! How ancient! This is one of the more classic sketches from an overall classic sketch show. So does that make this sketch ultra classic or mega classic? You decide.
