Jones was one of the six founding members of Monty Python. Formed in 1969, the slapstick set also included Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Michael Palin.

Before joining the group, he starred alongside Palin, 76, in the British sketch comedy series Twice a Fortnight, and opposite Palin and Idle, 76, on the series Do Not Adjust Your Set. Other early gigs were in acting and writing for The Complete and Utter History of Britain, as well as writing for The Frost Report — his first television job.

He would go on to break out with his fellow “Pythons” in the sketch comedy series Monty Python’s Flying Circus, which aired from 1969 to 1974 and paved the way for comedy films by the group like And Now for Something Completely Different (1971), Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975), Monty Python’s Life of Brian and Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life.
