Poetry Fools: Monty Python, Hugh Laurie, and Stephen Fry



As we celebrate the beginning of National Poetry Month and April Fool’s Day, perhaps the comedy skit on poetry and poets in the video above by Monty Python is most appropriate.

In addition, I invite everyone to visit previous posts with two humorous videos by Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry concerning poetry: “Hugh Laurie: Poetry for Modern Life” and “Poetry Prize.” Enjoy!

Ah, thank you very much! I loved every ant-pram of it - having suffered through a few myself, and having inflicted my poems on others.

I love Hugh Laurie.

I didn't realize that Hugh Laurie had such comic talents. I guess he can do just about anything as one of the great English actors.
