Eric Idle is best known for Monty Python’s Flying Circus. But he has also done a vast array of movies and TV shows, and has written songs, books, and a hit Broadway Musical. Since the 1990s the British comic has lived in Los Angeles. Idle talked to Thom Kokenge about his never-ending stream of ideas, what makes a great comedian and his involvement in the scientific community.
