Monty Python's groupies were never as attractive as rock groupies.
The British comedy troupe - which is made up of John Cleese, 74, Terry Jones, 71, Terry Gilliam, 72, Michael Palin, 70, and Eric Idle, 70 - admit they had a huge fan base in at the height of their fame, however, the girls who chased them weren't as gorgeous as the females who followed their musician friends.
Gilliam - who is married to Maggie Weston - told GQ magazine: ''There were groupies. But comedy groupies are not as good looking as rock groupies, that's all I can say. I mean, really interesting personalities! But the beauties we saw knocking on the doors in 'A Hard Day's Night' and all those rock shows were not the girls who were knocking on the Python stage door. Funny that!''
The comic group - who were once dubbed The Beatles of comedy - weren't only popular with the general public, they also had a number of A-List fans who loved watching their sketches, including Jimmy Page, George Harrison, Sir Paul McCartney and Robert Plant.
Gilliam revealed: ''We were hot. When Python was at its peak, every group, whether it was Led Zeppelin [or] The Beatles, loved us. We were 'THE' guys!''
Monty Python have reunited for a series of live shows at The O2 in London this summer entitled 'Monty Python Live (Mostly), 'One Down Five To Go' - a reference to late member Graham Chapman, who died in 1989 at the age of 48.
Late Beatles guitarist George Harrison was such a big Monty Python fan he financed their controversial 1979 film 'The Life of Brian' through his company HandMade Films.
His journey has not come without hard work and hustle, and 'At. Long. Last. A$AP.' is certainly his best work so far.
