John Cleese on how to irritate people: a comedy classic
No kidding: they need a video to tell us how to do this? Actually, How to Irritate People is a collection of TV skits, conceived in the mid-1960s by future Monty Python star John Cleese. As he'd do so often in future projects, Mr. Cleese demonstrates that, within every "veddy proper" Britisher, there beats the heart of a raving lunatic. These bits were assembled into a BBC special, starring both Cleese and his Cambridge classmate (and fellow Pythonite) Graham Chapman. The proceedings aren't quite as uninhibited as Cleese and Chapman's later Monty Python shows, but it's fascinating to watch these two comic geniuses in their embryonic stage. Originally telecast in 1965, How to Irritate People was restored for video in 1992. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
