The writer, director and all-round comedy legend joined comedians Robin Ince and Josie Long for a special extended edition of our very own series of comedy podcasts, now in its third series.
In what turned out to be a bit of a coup, Jones very kindly invited us into his north London home where, surrounded by priceless comedy memorabilia, he chatted freely with Robin and Josie about anything and everything.
Over the years, Utter Shambles has featured a great and eclectic list of special guests from Stephen Merchant, Tim Minchin (forthcoming) and Stewart Lee to Alan Moore, Billy Bragg and Scroobius Pip, but this is the first time we played host to comedy royalty, and Terry Jones didn’t disappoint.
In what turned out to be a fascinatingly frank and honest chat, Terry talked about making Monty Python’s Flying Circus, directing the controversial Life of Brian and being banned in Ireland.
He also discussed his recent work, including an opera about a doctor who happens to be a dog, his latest book to be published via the internet and writing anti war poems for kids.
As always, this very special edition of Robin and Josie’s Utter Shambles with Terry Jones can be downloaded for free here.
