- Page 1

Monty Python remains one of the greatest British comedy troupes of all time, and their work is still hilarious even today. Even though these sketches are over 40 years old, we're pretty sure you'll love these 13 hilarious moments.

Ministry of Silly Walks

The sketch that everybody knows, John Cleese steals the show (and our hearts) with his absolutely insane and hilarious leg movements.

Spanish Inquisition

The real Spanish Inquisition was a horrific period of human history, but Monty Python turns them into bumbling, incredibly silly fools.

The Parrot Sketch

Never has the notion of buying an already-dead animal been this hilarious, and John Cleese's exasperation is perfect.

Argument Clinic

The notion of paying someone to argue with you is pretty absurd, and the Pythons take the concept to its absolute hilarious extreme.


Have you ever gone to a restaurant where they were out of everything you wanted? Now imagine if the only replacement was spam. The results are pretty amazing.

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


'Clarissa Explains It All' Reboot Is Apparently In The Works, And Melissa Joan Hart Is Involved

She's credited as the first female lead of a Nickelodeon show, and because of her they were able to make many other hit series like The Secret World of Alex Mack and The Amanda Show. But Clarissa was truly one-of-a-kind.  I mean, how many people do you know who owned a baby alligator named Elvis? Her show was different then a lot of others, because she would directly address the audience. She dealt


'Murphy Brown' Revival Reveals Who They've Cast As Her Son But We're Still A Little Nervous

It was just a couple of months ago that we all got both excited and a little nervous for the Murphy Brown reboot. Sure, we loved the show when it originally aired, but as a rule, reboots are never as good as we want them to be. The show was unlike any others of its time. First of all, the lead character was a woman. Second of all, she was a woman with a controversial history. The recovering alcoholic was a career-focused woman, but she also made huge breakthroughs for women on television. She was a single mother, one who


'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us
