‘Monty Python’ is now more recognised by the films than by the TV series.
Mark Gatiss
I’ve always been more of a nerdy, academic type. I loved ‘Star Wars’ growing up. I have three older brothers, so they were a big influence on me. We loved ‘Danger Mouse,’ and we love ‘Monty Python’. We loved any kind of British comedy and ‘Wallace and Gromit’ and all of that stuff.
Mara Wilson
My parents introduced me to ‘SNL,’ Monty Python, and Richard Pryor probably way earlier than they had any right to.
Seth Meyers
Monty Python has such a huge following… myself included.
Merle Dandridge
Growing up, I watched shows such as ‘Blackadder’ and ‘Monty Python’ with my parents.
Mathew Baynton
I would really like to do a movie. Schedule-wise I don’t know when exactly, but I think it would be great to do a Portlandia movie. Some of my favorite television shows have done it and they’ve been great. Like Monty Python. I think it would be great.
Fred Armisen
Missing out on ‘Monty Python’ was a real blow at the time. I sometimes wonder how things would have been different if I had been invited to join ‘Monty Python,’ but as the saying goes, one door closes, another opens.
David Jason
I love Monty Python, Black Adder, Fawlty Towers. I’m a huge fan of British comedy.
Isla Fisher
Monty Python never directly said, ‘We’re liberals’ – they just did their sketches, and you had to figure it out. Generally, they were anti-establishment, of course, making fun of the people in power. I think, comedians, that’s their job – pointing out what other people might not notice and going, ‘Yoo-hoo, over here.’
Dana Carvey
I love the English. My God, they brought us ‘Benny Hill,’ ‘Monty Python,’ ‘The Office,’ Neville Chamberlain.
Seth MacFarlane
My mother is British; she’s from Shrewsbury. She turned me onto ‘Monty Python’ very early.
Jason Bateman
But as a kid, I loved ‘Monty Python.’ My Dad was a devout watcher. We used to watch it when we ate dinner!
Wes Bentley
I love ‘Monty Python,’ ‘Black Adder,’ ‘Fawlty Towers.’ I’m a huge fan of British comedy.
Isla Fisher
I was pretty much a child of ‘Monty Python.’ I grew up loving that type of humor and even structured a lot of humor in the same fashion.
Michael Jai White
You can start any ‘Monty Python’ routine and people finish it for you. Everyone knows it like shorthand.
Robin Williams
‘Monty Python’ became my religion when I was 10. It led me out of the depths of darkness. I loved ‘The Goodies,’ too, and ‘The Two Ronnies.’ I watched those shows on the public television station in Chicago.
Bob Odenkirk
I was greatly influenced by ‘The Goons’ and ‘Monty Python’ reconstituting what comedy was – it could come from a funny word, not just a set up and a pay-off. I liked the zaniness; they were satirical, slightly saucy and very literary in their references.
Sanjeev Bhaskar
At the end of Season Four of ‘Mr. Show,’ instead of doing another season, everyone just thought they wanted to go and do a movie. Kind of like Monty Python. Monty Python went right into ‘And Now For Something Completely Different,’ and everyone kind of compared ‘Mr. Show’ to Monty Python.
Scott Aukerman
‘Dead peasants insurance’ is a term that sounds as if it comes straight out of Monty Python. If only that were true.
John Lanchester
I love the humor of ‘Monty Python.’ I always remember being so impressed by how violent ‘Monty Python’ are, actually, when you look at what they do. Terry Gilliam has a great way of kind of proposing violence.
Miguel Sapochnik
I’ve learned to take care of myself. You know, I try to stay conscious of whatever my energy is at all times, really. I mean, I come home from work, and, depending on the day or depending on what was going on, if I needed to adjust, I’d just meditate, or play guitar, or watch some ‘Monty Python.’
Brent Sexton
I just don’t know when we all decided that if it doesn’t fit in a Happy Meal box, it’s not for kids. I remember flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz, and I grew up watching Monty Python. I think that kids can handle a lot more than we give them credit for, especially when it comes to the absurd.
Gore Verbinski
The label ‘wife of the prime minister’ is like a giant signboard pointing at my head from a Monty Python sketch. But I am not Mrs. Prime Minister. I’m a human being.
Margaret Trudeau
I come home from work, and depending on the day or depending on what was going on, if I needed to adjust, I’d just meditate or play guitar or watch some ‘Monty Python.’
Brent Sexton
Science was always a passion, but I also loved ‘Monty Python’ and ‘The Young Ones,’ and I discovered the Footlights comedy club at university, where a lot of those people got their start. I had a go and loved it immediately. After that, I just couldn’t stop writing sketches, and it all took off from there.
Ben Miller
As a little kid when I would watch ‘Monty Python’… that would just blow me away because it was just so silly and absurd, but so intelligent, and I loved that.
Reggie Watts
That was sort of the ‘Second City’ approach, which was try to be intelligent and assume your audience is intelligent. We were influenced by ‘Monty Python,’ too, which would have philosophers in a wrestling match.
Joe Flaherty
I always look at ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail.’ They talked about how they wrote this movie with horses, and then they realized that horses are super-expensive and time-consuming. ‘Why don’t we just change it to coconuts?’ That’s part of my process.
Jonathan Krisel
Monty Python crowd; half of them came from Cambridge, and half of them came from Oxford. But, there seems to be this jewel, this sort of two headed tradition of doing comedy, of doing sketches, and that kind of thing.
Rowan Atkinson
If a song is funny and absurd, and it sounds great, it’s just going to be that much funnier. And there’s no better example of that than ‘Monty Python.’
Seth MacFarlane
