Monty Python comic Terry Jones has died at 77, his agent has mentioned.
He had been affected by dementia. Jones’s agent says he died Tuesday night.
In an announcement, his household mentioned he died “after an extended, extraordinarily courageous however all the time good humoured battle with a uncommon type of dementia, FTD.”
With Eric Idle, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman and Terry Gilliam, Jones shaped Monty Python’s Flying Circus, whose anarchic humour helped revolutionise British comedy.
