Trim-Jeans Theatre is a sketch that appears in "Mr and Mrs Brian Norris' Ford Popular," the twenty-eighth episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.


A trio of Australian presenters, Mark Edwards, Jean Wennerstrom and Gary Coover (Michael Palin, Graham Chapman and Eric Idle) pose wearing trim-jeans. They explain the pros for wearing these jeans.

It cuts to a cathedral where a priest (Chapman) insists he is not a traitor to the king. Four knights in turn order him to resign, with the last ordering "lose inches off your hips, thighs, buttocks and abdomen."

Back to the studio, a before and after is shown of Kevin Francis (Terry Jones) wearing trim jeans. The screen transitions to the after, where Kevin has become a smaller, thinner much older man (John Hughman).

The presenters tell the audience they can watch classic plays with the actors wearing trim-jeans. A Great Escape-esque scene involves soldiers in trim-jeans sneaking past German soldiers who also wear trim-jeans.
