At a guess I'd say Michael Palin. He seems to play the most characters and the biggest range of characters.

Definitely Michael. He was a completely different person every character he played. Eric a very close second though :D

John Cleese invented Gumby.
But Michael was the best so he played Gumby the most.
Cleesey came up with the charecter whilst trying to work out how to stand in a pond in a strange way for a certain sketch. I dont remember, but i definately remember reading that Cleese is the Gumby creator.

Okay. I found it:

from http://orangecow.org/pythonet/pyth-faq.html

"Q: Pardon my ignorance, but isn't a "Gumby" a little green man made of clay?
A: For Python's purposes, no. On the Python shows the Gumbies were a race of characters who talk very loudly, break things, and wear a precise costume capped off by gumboots (hence the name) and a handkerchief upon the head. The catchphrase of the class is "My brain hurts." All the Pythons played Gumbies at one point or another but the best of these is usually recognized as Michael Palin, followed closely by John Cleese. Cleese claims to have created the character during an improvised filming session while Python was still in its planning stages. He was supposed to stand in a lake and say "I would tax people who stand in water," a particularly idiotic line, and developed the costume and persona while unsure of what to do. This story may be incorrect as the bit he speaks of did not surface in an actual episode until series 2, episode 2 (The Spanish Inquisition), and this is a bit long to wait on a clip of that sort. However, we have no better explanation so Cleese's story stands. The connection, if any, to the claymation character is unknown, but it remains the only thing Art Clokey, Eddie Murphy, and the Pythons have in common. "

so there you have it.
