<br />I would also like to note that the only reason that Terry Gilliam is last on my list is because he dosent show up in nearly as many sketches, movies, etc as the other pythons do, but I do love his anamations [:D]

*Although the jailer from Life of Brian and Pasty from Holy Grail were priceless.

i think you shouldn't have cheated on poor arthur, even if it was with eric idle.

You're fooling yourself.

Palin's the best performer imo, but as a writer Terry Jones may have been the most important in creating a structure and Gilliam says that Idle was the best verbally.
They all contribute different things, as writers and performers, which is what has made Monty Python so enduring.

it seems i haven't actually replied to this with my opinion yet, so i now shall.

i'd have to say that cleese is my favorite, with palin being an extremely close second. people say that all he does is the angry-psycho characters, but i think he's the only one who could have made them as funny as they were. also, the cleese-palin combination is the best combination between two python members in my opinion.

Now, I just want to play on my panpipes.
I just want to drink me some wine.

So you might as well have a good time.

Palin and Cleese work so well together because they're like yin and yang (or the other way round).
Cleese may not be the world's greatest or most versatile actor, but he has an incredible presence. In series 4 of Python, he really is sorely missed because of the sheer sense of tension and rage he can bring to a scene.
BTW, Eric Idle and Terry Jones I've always found slightly too self-conscious as actors. They were clearly both wonderful writers, but somehow they never seem as comfortable onscreen or as 'in character' as, say, Palin.
After Palin, I'd say Chapman is the best actor, something he really demonstrates in Grail and Brian. The fact that he may been sozzled a lot of the time might have been an advantage, in that it helped give him that relaxed, dreamy quality that he often has. The same thing happened with the great Peter Cook.

Mine would have to be Idle, followed VERY closely by Gilliam. By the way, I'm new, and I like these smiles.

You're no fun anymore!

I love Graham. I would marry him if he wasn't gay... or dead.

Aaah I'm still working on it.....the Mikester is still waiting for me....

And I'm now also wrestling with ways (once we get the plan into action) I can convert Graham........no, fogchicken, I think if Graham just saw you and me - he would be instantly converted! So there you go. :shock:
