When you heard the name Monty Python you could tell that you were in for a good laugh and with Terry Jones he was really a cool and witty addition to the Monty Python crew. I did hear that in addition to being diagnosed with dementia Terry Jones also struggled with other illnesses but in spite of being ill Terry was a trooper. This is a truly sad loss for Monty Python fans and Terry Jones will leave an incredible legacy of his talent through the Monty Python comedy films and Monty Python's Flying Circus

Hi, Bestie! It is a sad day to lose a Monty Python. Terry was a good comedian. What people do not know is that Monty Python mainly poked fun at the socialist society of Britain. Such as their government was so huge they even had a "ministry of silly walks" Making fun of how socialism wants to regulate every aspect of peoples lives. I will miss Terry Jones.

He played the most female roles of any of the Pythons in drag. His portrayal of women was loud and shrill.
