Funny you should mention that - I put it in my Amazon basket a couple of days ago.

Chapman has really become much funnier to me over the years. I used to think of him as sort of the Mike Pinder of comedy, just sort of always doing the boring serious roles, but now I see the borderline insanity in him. He really makes me laugh now.

Hard to put these guys in any sort of order. Depends on the sketch.

For years I would have put Palin on top. But Cleese (and I'm counting his other stuff too) just seems like someone who laughs at the world more, and I like that. Although they were inevitably disappointing, I really liked what he did in the reunion gigs, too.

I don't really like Cleese as a person. Bitter and tetchy to a fault. I know it's a cliche but Palin comes across as a lovely bloke. He doesn't miss Cleese in his dairies though.

Idle's an interesting case, 'cause he's probably the least funny in Python. Yet it seems like a lot of their brand of comedy is his vision. And without him, no Rutles, which would be a tragedy.

I like Quaco's take on Chapman too. I think I agree.

I'd probably put it something like this:

Cleese
Palin
Idle
Chapman
Gilliam
Jones

They all have their strengths, though. Gilliam is brilliant, of course, but he's rarely the reason I laugh out loud. And I'm probably being unfair to Jones, but he's the one I have the least handle on exactly what he brings to the table.

Coincidentally, I've been watching this recently.
