    Always loved him and Palin as the mafia goons trying to intimidate Graham Chapman as the colonel:

    "You've got a nice army base here, colonel... be a shame if something were to 'appen to it. Cuz 'fings break, donnay?"

    and as THE BISHOP! "Awww, we was too late!"

    and rhyming off the increasingly ridiculous names of candidates in the Election Night Special sketch...

    Sad to read, although not unexpected, given his health issues. Comedy would not be the same without him.

    RIP
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    And his clergymen wore sunglasses. Love the music for the Bishop sketch.

    Damn shame, but not a surprise.
    He was always the easiest one for me to connect with, whoever he was pretending to be.
    Of course the Python stuff was an amazing foundation, but I've always held Erik The Viking as a personal favorite. I asked my sister, who worked at a video store around that time, to order me a copy of the movie on VHS. I had no idea back then that the UK used a different display format, so the video I ordered and waited a few months to receive was only static on my TV.
    I held onto the tape, until one night a few years later, I saw the movie was coming up on some movie channel, and I recorded it onto that tape.
    Still have it.

    Big Python fan here. Jones has been ill for a long time, but this still sucks.

    A fond farewell to one of my favorite comedians, Terry Jones of Monty Python. From the Spam waitress, to the grossly obese Mr. Creosote, to the mouse organist, to Cardinal Biggles of the Spanish Inquisition, to his direction work on "The Holy Grail", "The Life of Brian" and "The Meaning of Life", as well as writing the screenplay to "Labyrinth", Mr. Jones was genuinely hilarious.

    I will never eat Spam, egg, Spam, Spam, bacon and Spam again.

    Very sad to hear this. A truly talented comedian and writer. Holy Grail and Flying Circus in particular were favorites of my brother and I.

    Thanks for the laughs Terry
