The Monty Python boys are not easy interview subjects. They talk all at once, mock the audience and tell people they're asking terrible questions. Fortunately, their humor more than makes up for their lack of cooperation.
Last night John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Terry Gilliam appeared on "Late Night" to promote their upcoming documentary "Monty Python: Almost the Truth (the Lawyer's Cut)," a six hour history of the comedy group that will air in America on IFC starting this Sunday.
Fallon devoted (almost) the entire show to the troupe, who rewarded him by mocking his monologue and getting in water fights. But once the men settled down they shared the stories of their sketches and discussed the hiccups they faced while forming their legacy.
