Needless to say, I am very anti-britcom. I don't know what it is, but it makes me want to fling myself into a pit of tigers... ^^;
Im such a bad, bad nerd.
While I'm not trying to take on the hopeless task of converting you to britcomness, the fat guy sketch is hardly representative of Python. At that point, they simply set out to make the most disgusting scene imaginable (and succeeded); in fact, they resolved not to hold anything back, and many scenes in that movie were scripted for their shock value.
OTOH, if you don't like the parrot, Python's not for you. It's one of the most popular MP sketches.
BTW, a classic Python story: The movie "Life of Brian" was banned as blasphemous and never screened for 30 years in the little town of Aberystwyth, west Wales. However, one of the actresses in the film eventually became mayor of Aberystwyth, and fought to have the movie finally shown.
