Who is your favorite member of the Monty Python comedy troupe, which produced "Monty Python's Flying Circus" for 4 seasons, and 3 movies "Monty Python and the Meaning of Life", "Monty Python's Life of Brian", and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  Who is your favorite member?

A) You forgot the movies And Now For Something Completly Different and Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl.

B) My favourite python?  Hmm... I've always kinda liked Michael Palin the best... but then, Terry G has done the best work post-python... but then, Eric Idle's the only one of them 've actually met in person, which has to count for something... meh, I'm still voting Palin, if only for The Lumberjack Song.

Descisions, descisions.... Eric Idle did write most of the masterful songs but Michael Palin is the funniest. So I'll go for him.

Help, Help, I'm being Opressed!!!

Michael Palin. I just remember The Lumberjack Song so well. And plus, I loved his "world travels" series in the late 80s/early 90s. They are all great though  big grin

Hmmm thats a really good question. I think that I will go with Michael Palin as his works probably the funniest stuff overall but the others are all great as well.

SPLUNGE!

I mean, maybe this poll is a good idea, but maybe it isn't. I'm not being indecisive, you know.  tongue

Tough call sorting out any one of them...

I was thinking in terms of their performances in the actual series and movies, but whatever.

Terry Gilliam, who co-directed at least 1 of the movies.

I like Palin and Cleese the best, Palin for the lumberjack song and the bit that Coilette mentioned from the Holy Grail  laff also for his work without the pythons. Cleese for the dead parrot sketch and his post-python work.

I suppose I'll vote Palin, but Eric Idle used to be my favourite when I was about 10.

I always have a sentiment for Graham Chapman, he was so vibrantly funny, and he lived his life as an openly gay man in the public world LONG BEFORE it was even close to acceptable (it still isn't in most of the States).  But he was one of the funniest men to ever have been taken before his time.  Maybe if he'd still be alive we'd appreciate him more.

I'm not sure, I like all of them, but my favorites probably are Cleese, Palin, and Idle. Hmm, I think I'll go for Cleese.

Of all of the Pythons, I have to go with Palin.  By all accounts, a nice man, damn funny, and also (together with Terry Jones) wrote most of my favourite sketches.

I like Cleese and Palin, but that's probably because I've seen them the most.  hmpf

When I watched Flying Circus when I was little, I always liked John Cleese for some reason.  Looking back now, I'd have to say that my favorite is Graham Chapman.  He played King Arthur and Brian (not to mention Yellowbeard).
