"Monty Python’s Flying Circus" was a breeding ground for absurd and surreal humor, but the Ministry of Silly Walks sketch is particularly iconic. John Cleese’s portrayal of a civil servant in a fictitious government agency, dedicated to developing silly walks, is a masterpiece of physical comedy. The sketch’s critique of bureaucracy, mixed with Cleese’s exaggerated movements, makes it a quintessential Monty Python moment that has been making audiences laugh for decades.

#4 “The Contest” – “Seinfeld” (1992)

"Seinfeld," a show renowned for its ability to craft humor out of the minutiae of daily life, reached new heights with "The Contest." The episode revolves around Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer entering a pact to see who can abstain from self-gratification the longest. The brilliance of the episode lies in its ability to dance around the subject matter with euphemisms and innuendos, making the audience laugh at what is unsaid as much as at what is.

"The Office" (U.S.) has its fair share of cringeworthy and hilarious moments, but the CPR training scene in "Stress Relief: Part 1" is particularly outstanding. The Dunder Mifflin employees' attempt to learn CPR turns into a fiasco, peaking when Dwight decides to harvest the face of the CPR dummy, channeling Hannibal Lecter. This scene perfectly encapsulates the show’s unique blend of humor and horror, leaving viewers both laughing and slightly aghast.
