But more recently, the former Python's attention has turned to the politics and the post-9/11 age. He has taken satirical aim at George W. Bush and his own country's Tony Blair in a series of essays published in British papers over the past three years. His brutally funny observations have now been published in a new book entitled "Terry Jones's War on the War on Terror."
Tune in to hear more from Monty Python's Terry Jones on politics in the White House and Downing Street, and what it means for us all.
Terrry Jones, founding member of the British comedy troupe, Monty Python, author of several books about the Middle Ages, including "Who Murdered Chaucer?
