Review:

And now for something completely rare. This 1968 television special is essential for connoisseurs of British humor and, of course, Monty Python completists. A pre-Python John Cleese teams up with Michael Palin and Graham Chapman (with invaluable assistance from co-Fawlty Towers creator Connie Booth and Tim Brooke-Taylor) for sketches that serve as a master class in demonstrating insincerity, inefficiency, and all-around rude behavior "to help people become more neurotic." The tricky bit, Cleese teaches, "is to never push the unsuspecting victim too far. With skill and tact, we can keep tensions bottled up for weeks, months, eventually you may induce a nervous breakdown, or better still, actual damage to the brain cells." Cleese and company portray very irritating parents, moviegoers, waiters, and partygoers. Of special interest to Python fans will be an auto mechanic sketch that anticipates the classic "Dead Parrot" sketch, as well as the job interview sketch that later found its way into the Python repertoire. This time capsule gem is, as Cleese observes at one point, "effective, but not very subtle." --Donald Liebenson

From the Back Cover:

Anyone can make themselves unpopular-but it takes a past master like John Cleese to be really irritating! The secret, he says, is to let the other person believe it's all totally unintentional-and that's just the first of many tricks of the trade he's giving away in this hilarious video. With the help of Python pals Michael Palin and Graham Chapman, Connie Booth from Fawlty Towers and Goodie Tim Brooke-Taylor, Cleese demonstrates the uncanny ability to keep his victims just the right temperature under the collar...one degree below boiling point! Parents, waiters, salesmen, talk-show hosts-for some people irritation is a way of life. The rest of us have to work at it. After watching this video you'll possess all the know-how you need to irritate for business of pleasure...as well as discover from where Basil Fawlty got so many of his ideas!
