Agent: Monty Python star Terry Jones has died aged 77
LONDON (AP) - Terry Jones, a member of the Monty Python comedy troupe, has died. He was 77 and had been suffering from dementia.
Jones's agent says he died Tuesday evening. In a statement, his family said he died “after a long, extremely brave but always good humored battle with a rare form of dementia, FTD.”
With Eric Idle, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman and Terry Gilliam, Jones formed Monty Python's Flying Circus, whose anarchic humor helped revolutionize British comedy.
