Browsing Spotify isn't just akin to browsing the largest music store in the world (yes, even larger than that Virgin Megastore you used to go to on Saturdays). It's also akin to browsing the record collection of the world's geekiest comedy fan.

A comedy fan who has, for example, Every Single Monty Python Record Ever Brought Out Including The Soundtracks To Their Films.

So here's our very first Spotify comedy playlist for you: a 14-track sampler of some of the Python team's finest sketches and songs. From the very famous (Spanish Inquisition, Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life) to the slightly less famous (An Elk Sketch, Eric The Half A Bee).

Enjoy. And also check out the playlist made by our American cousins over at Huffington Post US Comedy: some of their favourite stand-up clips.
