Monty Python – Four Yorkshiremen

In times of crisis, it’s almost essential to resort to a good sense of humour to feel better. In times of big crisis, you need the best comedians and that’s Monty Python: watch their live show about a bunch of rich people looking back on the “good old times when they were poor and happier”. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you very much for the transcription. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to understand they were having a Bordeaux, for instance.
    See you.

  2. ‘Luvely’ accent. Good old Yorkskire. A Yorkshire saying:
    ‘See all, ‘ear all, say nowt.
    Eat all, sup all, say nowt,
    and if thou ever does owt for nowt,
    always do it for thissen’. Lots of ‘luv’, Linda H. C. xx

  3. How funny ! Although I’ve had some problems to understand them,… maybe too fast, but I realise the sense of their speech, the ironic sense of humour of Monty Python. I remember my good old times too, when we saw Brian’s Life in Oviedo, and we couldn’t stop laughing and we talked about it again and again ….

  4. Hi everybody!!

    Hilarious! I,ve had to contain my laugh in class! How funny it was seeing four rich men complaining about his luxury life and missing their poor previous one!

    I understand it quite well, although the internet was horrible about louding it…


  5. This video is a great example of English humour, which I’m not used to because is very different to Spanish humour. I still prefer Spanish humour so I found this video quite funny but not hilarious.
    I found it easy to understand their talking, however, the scrip was a great help to read it after watching the video so as to understand the whole conversation.
