The guy that people laugh at EVERYTHING he says. It's a great bit in and of itself, but knowing that it's a reaction to their own growing popularity, it's genius.

"The funniest joke ever written."  Just the epic scope that routine ended with through a war documentary and soldiers spouting gibberish mixed with real German words all from one guy sitting at a desk and writing.  Love it.

I haven't seen the show in a while. Is that the one they used in the show, and is different from And Now For Something Completely Different? I remember "My dog has no nose. How does he smell? Terrible."

that one's in there, too. That joke about the dog is the one Hitler says. The one I mentioned is one they say over the british radio.

Back in college, one of the guys on our floor was an army brat who grew up in Germany and spoke fluent German. One day, I had borrowed the Comp;ete Monty Python script book from the library and on a lark, asked him to translate the lnes, just to see what the actual joke was. I was quite disappointed to discover that it didn't really mean anything.

Oh, and mine?
"They mean to win Wimbleton!"

"Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore riding through the night!"

"Scott of the Antarctic!"

"No. 1 - The Larch"

"(Gasp) The Bishop!"

Fallon is a horrible interviewer...but he keeps interviewing such awesome/geeky guests. It's annoying to see Felicia Day or Tim Schafer on screen and wish it was Craig Ferguson interviewing them.

I think I got the names mixed up. Martin Curry interviews a filmmaker called Matthew Pagat, who has ENORMOUS buckteeth and this is reflected in every single movie he makes where all the main characters have ridiculously sized buck teeth that make Bugs Bunny's set look absolutely diminutive in comparison.

Currently enjoying Live at the Hollywood Bowl.
The four yorkshiremen is one of my very favorite sketches from the Hollywood bowl.
