Eric Idle Complete Bio & Career

Eric Idle began writing and performing comedy while attending Cambridge's Pembroke College.After graduation, Idle began writing for the comedies I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again and The Frost Report, through which he collaborated with Cleese, Chapman and recent Oxford graduates Michael Palin and Terry Jones. Idle, Palin and Jones then moved on to Do Not Adjust Your Set, a zany kids show that brought American animator Terry Gilliam into the fold.
 
In 1969, Idle, Cleese, Chapman, Palin, Jones, and Gilliam launched Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Capturing the irreverent ethos that had become popular through earlier British comedies, Monty Python forged its own identity with absurd sketches that mocked both contemporary and historical figures and made unpredictable detours. The show was aired for four seasons and spawned multiple feature films.
 
Post-Python, Idle published a satirical novel, Hello Sailor in 1975, and enjoyed some success with the creation of Rutland Weekend Television, a sketch comedy show that aired for two seasons. Idle's play, Pass the Butler, was staged at London's Globe Theatre in 1983, and he enjoyed acclaim later in the decade for his performance as Ko-Ko in a revival of The Mikado. During these years he also appeared in a series of comedic films, including Yellowbeard, European Vacation, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen and Nuns on the Run.
 
With the start of the new millennium, Idle began a successful late-career turn as a theatre impresario. He enjoyed his greatest late-career success with the creation of the smash musical Monty Python's Spamalot.
