Many people use triple-quoted strings for this:

    """
    i=1
    i+=1
    print i
    print i+1
    """

It's not a comment, strictly speaking, however it generally achieves the
desired results.  Even less comment-like is "if False:":

    if False:
        i=1
        i+=1
        print i
        print i+1

That has the disadvantage that you need to reindent the lines of interest.
