Monty Python: Hilarious & Touching Clips from Graham Chapman's Funeral
On October 4, 1989, founding Monty Python member Graham Chapman, star of both Holy Grail and Life of Brian, died from cancer. At his memorial service, the remaining Pythons eulogized Chapman in truly appropriate style -- by cursing, joking around, but in the end, expressing love for their lost peer.
In this clip, watch John Cleese deliver a beautiful eulogy (including some rather tasteful swearing -- "anything for [Graham] but mindless good taste"), then Eric Idle leading the whole crew in the song from the end of Life of Brian, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life." Not a dry eye in the house.
