How to Irritate People on DVD by eroomnala on 20 December 2002 1:46am
 
A pre-Python TV show called How to Irritate People with some acting from Mike is now available on DVD. I even saw it in a shop in Sydney, Australia

This is largely a Cleese project, yes?

Just curious, as I may be checking this out sometime soon...has anyone seen it, and did you enjoy it? How much is Michael in there?

Mary;
I don't have the DVD, but the video, but it will be the same. It is a John Clesse project, written by both John Cleese and Graham Chapman. Both of them are in it with Michael, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Connie Booth. My opinion of it is that it is good, but don't expect it to be like Monty Python. You don't have the other members writing some of the sketches, so it is expected to be different. Anyway, I find some of the sketches are very funny and others not so much. Very interesting to see the beginnings of the Dead Parrot sketch, (Michael playing a very untrustworthy man in a garage) and another two sketches that were also in Monty Python Flying Circus. Michael is in it quite a lot.

Thanks Dianne, I just might check that out! :O)

What were the other two sketches eventually used in MPFC?

~Mary (It's 1:30 in the morning this time. It keeps getting later...but tonight it's because it was the last night of the show and there was a cast party after and then I hung out with my friend from out-o-town. And then I *still* get online!)
