Part "Monty Python", part "Cheech and Chong", part "Benny Hill" and all strange!!!
"Os Trapalhões" (The Tramps) has to be some of the most bizarre Comedy sketch TV show ever made. Think of what you mix "Monty Python", "Cheech and Chong" and "Benny Hill show" and this is what you get.
There are a foursome of guys just like "Monty Python". There is Didi (whom makes a HORRIBLE crossdresser! unlike Mussum), Dedei, Mussum and Zacarias. And like Benny Hill and Monty Python, there are comedy sketches that revolve around strange topics (such as fairy tale spoofs and neighbors of Brasil) and like Cheech and Chong, sometimes, it gets to be quite mature, but at least not as shocking as, oh, let's say South Park (ugh!).
But I kinda like the earlier stuff from the 1960-1970-1980 and early 1990's myself.
