To call a bit of comedy "Pythonesque" is to say that it's smart, irreverent, probably absurdist, and, most importantly, absolutely hilarious. Michael Palin - along with John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Terry Gilliam - formed the seminal British troupe Monty Python, inspiring a new adjective while creating an entirely different style of sketch comedy that has kept audiences laughing for nearly forty years.
