According to the NME, Monty Python actor and comedian Terry Jones has passed away at the age of 77.
Fellow Python member Sir Michael Palin shared a tribute: “Terry was one of my closest, most valued friends. He was kind, generous, supportive and passionate about living life to the full.”
“He was far more than one of the funniest writer-performers of his generation, he was the complete Renaissance comedian – writer, director, presenter, historian, brilliant children’s author, and the warmest, most wonderful company you could wish to have.”
Farewell, Terry Jones. The great foot has come down to stamp on you. My god what pleasure you gave, what untrammelled joy and delight. What a wonderful talent, heart and mind
