Monkey Trousers is a television comedy series on ITV first broadcast in 2005, featuring Alistair McGowan, John Thomson, Ronni Ancona, Mackenzie Crook, Griff Rhys Jones, Neil Morrissey, Vic Reeves, Bob Mortimer, Marc Wootton and Steve Coogan. It is directed by David Kerr and produced by Bob Mortimer and Vic Reeves' production company, Pett Productions.

It succeeded The All Star Comedy Show, which was written by Reeves and Mortimer, and produced by Coogan.

Sketches of the show included the moronic, yet fearless 'Croc Botherer' (played by Mortimer), Roy the eerie, lonely toy-shopkeeper (played by Coogan), Alistair the hopeless estate agent, who replies to every question with "I don't know", the swearing chef, and the 'Geordie Astronauts' (played by Reeves, Mortimer and Mark Benton).

A DVD of the series was released on 4 July 2005.
