We've discovered that the less we do, the more money we make.
No day of my life passes without someone saying the words 'Monty Python' to me. It's not bad.
The Minister of Transport issued this appeal to motorists: Can anyone give him a lift to Leicester?
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will make me go in a corner and cry by myself for hours.
I think the special thing about Python is that it's a writers' commune. The writers are in charge. The writers decide what the material is.
To me, the musical is best when it's a musical comedy. So if you have a very, very funny show, and very good, funny songs, that's what the musical does best.
I like the idea of being out there regularly with an audience and with a funny gang of people. That's what I grew up with - doing television, doing shows every week.
I love being an older comic now. It's like being an old soccer or an old baseball player. You're in the Hall of Fame and it's nice, but you're no longer that person in the limelight on the spot doing that thing.
At least one way of measuring the freedom of any society is the amount of comedy that is permitted, and clearly a healthy society permits more satirical comment than a repressive, so that if comedy is to function in some way as a safety release then it must obviously deal with these taboo areas. This is part of the responsibility we accord our licensed jesters, that nothing be excused the searching light of comedy. If anything can survive the probe of humour it is clearly of value, and conversely all groups who claim immunity from laughter are claiming special privileges which should not be granted.
