  1. I really don't like the idea of having our old comedians die these days. we really need people like Eric Idle right now.

    I can't tell you how badly I wish George Carlin could give commentary on the ways of today.

  2. I had the good fortune of meeting him after a performance many years ago before he had premiered Spamalot on Broadway. Truly lovely man. Also, the Philosophers’ Song is probably one of the funniest songs I have ever heard. The whole sketch is, but the song is especially notable.
    The Smoketoomuch sketch is also hilarious because they do it in variations in the many different releases they have done if it.

  3. Always been my favorite Python, for some reason.. also liked some other roles, like Passepartout in In 80 days around the world (where is that actually?)

  4. Members of Python are so honest, which makes their story telling so interesting. I enjoy history, even cinematic history, and the details of behind the scenes makes me enjoy Monty Python more.
