  •  Bad transcription! (1+ / 0-)

    The reign, or the 'error' is over.

    Noooo!  Whoever transcribed that ruined the joke!  Robin said, "The reign of error is over"!  (A play on "Reign of Terror".)

    He is a 'comedy pinnate!'

    A 'pinnate' is a feather-like leaf. :)  The joke should be "He is a comedy piñata!"  One assumes because we'd like to hit him until the candy falls out.

    On an odd comedy note: the first bit of the intro from Cleese (the part that went "I just want to thank you all" etc.) was word-for-work the opening of a skit Eleanor Bron did in "Pleasure at Her Majesty's", a charity comedy show done by Monty Python and more than a dozen other amazing British comedians for Amnesty International back in the '70s.  Makes me wonder if he might not have been the one who wrote it for her.
