    #1 Holy Grail
    &
    Life of Brian would be a very close second place for me.

    This is one of those questions they ask you in Hell! [​IMG]
    Grail is my favorite, but Life of Brian is maybe a whisker behind it. And yeah, I love The Meaning of Life too! [​IMG]

    Life of Brian, without a doubt.

    Holy Grail a strong yet distant 2nd.

    Life of Brian with Holy Grail a whisker behind. Both are comedy classics.

    Life of Brian, easily. Holy Grail is great, but kind of falls down at the end. Meaning of Life is a distant third.

    Ni Ni, 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail', I love all the Pythons, but this has always been my fave, every scene cracks me up.

    -----------------------------------------------

    ARTHUR: How do you do, good lady. I am Arthur, King of the

    Britons. Who's castle is that?

    WOMAN: King of the who?

    ARTHUR: The Britons.

    WOMAN: Who are the Britons?

    ARTHUR: Well, we all are. we're all Britons and I am your king.

    WOMAN: I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an

    autonomous collective.

    DENNIS: You're fooling yourself. We're living in a dictatorship. A self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working classes--

    WOMAN: Oh there you go, bringing class into it again.

    DENNIS: That's what it's all about if only people would--

    ARTHUR: Please, please good people. I am in haste. Who lives in that castle?

    WOMAN: No one lives there.

    ARTHUR: Then who is your lord?

    WOMAN: We don't have a lord.

    ARTHUR: What?

    DENNIS: I told you. We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We

    take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week.

    ARTHUR: Yes.

    DENNIS: But all the decision of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting.

    ARTHUR: Yes, I see.

    DENNIS: By a simple majority in the case of purely internal

    affairs,--

    ARTHUR: Be quiet!

    DENNIS: --but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more--

    ARTHUR: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!

    WOMAN: Order, eh -- who does he think he is?

    ARTHUR: I am your king!

    WOMAN: Well, I didn't vote for you.

    ARTHUR: You don't vote for kings.

    WOMAN: Well, 'ow did you become king then?

    ARTHUR: The Lady of the Lake, [angels sing] her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [singing stops] That is why I am your king!

    DENNIS: Listen -- strange women lying in ponds distributing

    swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

    ARTHUR: Be quiet!

    DENNIS: Well you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!

    ARTHUR: Shut up!

    DENNIS: I mean, if I went around sayin' I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me they'd put me away!

    ARTHUR: Shut up! Will you shut up!

    [THUMP]

    DENNIS: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system.

    ARTHUR: Shut up!

    DENNIS: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! HELP! HELP! I'm being repressed!

    ARTHUR: Bloody peasant!

    DENNIS: Oh, what a give away. Did you hear that, did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about -- did you see him repressing me, you saw it didn't you?

    When I was a kid, it was Holy Grail. Since then I've changed my mind, now its Life of Brian.

    Monty Python & the Holy Grail.

    However, Live at the Hollywood Bowl is my second favorite as it is the best collection of their sketches IMHO.
