Subject: RE: BS: greatest written comedy
I had never heard of Monty Python before I saw "The Holy Grail", so I had no idea what hit me. I sat there with aching ribs and tears running down my face. "Young Frankenstein" is right up there for me, too. And I second the vote for "Dr. Strangelove": a masterpiece of vicious, frightening, hilarious genius.
