How to Irritate People (1969) IMDb

Categorization

Pre-Monty Python tutorial. Cleese and Chapman writing, Palin and Booth among the actors.

Subject

Cleese, as himself, introduces a series of pedagogical skits on the common theme of how to incite an optimal degree of irritation in those around you. It emerges that he does this in order to get back at the phone company who did it to him.

Commentary

Slow and tame by the standards of the post-Python world. Politically incorrect, but unfortunately in a very traditional and boring racist-misogynist fashion.
