Greatest first two minutes of a chat show EVER.
John Cleese's mustache alone is worth 5.
The gay guy (may I infer he's gay? he's wearing a maroon ensemble with a campy necklace) claims that you wouldn't write a bit about the death of Socrates. Well it turns out Steve Martin did just that, and he even got Werner Klemperer on board:

It's the greatest irony in the world that the people who have dedicated themselves to a piece of literature so frequently miss the point of art. The movie ends with a song with the lyrics, "You'll see it's all a show \ Keep 'em laughing as you go. \ Just remember that the last laugh is on you" and they think they can impress upon them that death is no laughing matter.

Holy crap. That bishop really is annoying. With advocates like that, no wonder that Christianity faded in Britain.

Oh, it's also worth mentioning in this thread, for those who are unaware, that Malcolm Muggeridge is essentially responsible for the "creation" of Mother Teresa. His documentary about her work in Calcutta in the 60s resulted in her massive leap in stardom and fame and introduced the myth that the documentary footage had been filmed in "unfilmable" conditions and then rendered visible by the hand of God, when in fact, it was the cameraman using a low-light film.
