Monty Python's Complete Waste of Time is a collection of minigames, screen savers, desktop wallpaper and icons for Mac OS System 7, DOS and Windows. The content is drawn primarily from the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV series. It also features specially-written and recorded interstitial and linking material created by some of the Python members and Secret Policeman's Ball producer Martin Lewis. Overall producer was Bob Ezrin.

In 1995, it won the CODiE Award for "Best Strategy Program" from the Software Publishers Association.[1]

The CD-Rom was named after a line in Life of Brian, in which the People's Front of Judea criticize their own unusually bureaucratic style, with a series of comments culminating in "This is a complete waste of time!".

The game contains a hidden trivia game/maze in the Loonitorium. When the game was first released, the completion of the secret game before a certain date made one eligible for a drawing for prizes.
