    Your favourite python?

    John Cleese for me.

    Interesting poll. Probably the comic messiah, our Lord John Cleese*, for me too. Was the absolute master of physical comedy.

    *Saddo points if you know which other sketch show I'm quoting there.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Not the Nine O'Clock News was brilliant at the time. Its a bit dated now, but I find that some of its sketches Kinda Lingers in my head.

    Tough choice between Jones and Palin. I've gone for Jones. All of 'em were bloody funny at the time, but can't forgive Idle for some of the pure unadulterated ****e that he's made subsequently.

    Michael Palin, such a gun. Love all the travel programmes he has done since being a python.

    Chapman. For enticing Cleese to, well, you know.

    Brilliant straight man, too.

    Probably Cleese, but they all guns. Gillam's animations deserve a mention. Palin's Ripping Yarns are fantastic as well.

    Btw CDM, fail to see how this thread highlights the shortcomings of democracy or promotes a political revolution. Disappointed to see you're going soft.
