Terence Bayler

Actor -- via the Guardian. It could be said that he was the funniest person associated with Monty Python, if not actually a member of the group. A good actor known previously for his Macduff in Polanski's "Macbeth," his bits in "Life of Brian," ad libs incorporated into the script, are gems. First: "I'm Brian, and so is my wife"; second, in response to an enormous crowd shouting in unison, "Yes, we're all different!", his lone voice asserting, "I'm not!" In ratio of time spent being funny to the amount of time I've laughed, Bayler is the current leader, by a mile. He did portray the Bloody Baron in "Harry Potter" as well.
