These “powerful" men can barely perform simple tasks, such as running in a straight line, and the humor comes from the fact that these elite groups have influence, but are quite stupid. However, by making fun of these classes, the audiences that directly belong to the same classes understand and can relate to what Monty Python is trying to get at, therefore they can understand and laugh at the jokes, whereas those who don’t belong to the same classes cannot relate, and therefore may not understand as well as those that are in the same social class.
