Watching this television special is like encountering demos of early day Beatles... We can see where he'll be going, but he's not quite there yet.

Audience Reviews for John Cleese on How to Irritate People

This is sort of a documentary or a "mockumentary"? The sketches remind me of Monty Python a lot. Cleese is really funny and this movie has some really good sketches, but I wished he could have put them together into a narrative story.

A bit of pre-Pythonism from John Cleese and co shows the beginnings of the beloved formula, but it isn't quite there yet as most of the team are glaring in their absence. A few funny moments, but if you're expecting comic genius on the level of The Holy Grail or even And Now For Something Completely different, you'll be disappointed.
