Personal quote: John (Cleese) once told me he'd do anything for money. So I offered him a pound to shut up, and he took it.

Eric Idle is the only Monty Python member who wrote alone. He plays guitar and has been a composer on a few movies and tv series, mostly in the Monty Python movies (his most famous song is Always look on the bright side of life). He has acted in many movies and tv series during and after Monty Python, sometimes only lending the movies his voice (A few examples are Ella enchanted 2004, Hollywood homicide 2003, Pinocchio 2002, 102 Dalmatians 2000, South Park: bigger longer & uncut 1999, The adventures of Baron Munchausen 1988 and The Rutles 1978). He has written many tv series such as The Two Ronnies (1971), Hark at Barker (1969), Broaden your mind (1968), We have ways of making you laugh (1968), According to Dora (1968) and Do not adjust your set (1967). He has produced a little and directed one tv series in 1982 and The Rutles in 1978. He has also directed and appeared in Saturday night live a few times. Right now he is working on Spamalot, a play/musical that is based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It is supposed to be shown on Broadway in 2005. He got permission from the other Python members to do this because they liked his script.
