He started acting at a young age in school and would go on to attend Brasenose College where he joined forces with others, including Terry Jones, in writing comedic material.

Palin got his first professional gig as a presenter on the English show Now! in 1965! and at around the same would work with Jones and the duo would go on to pen comedy sketches for shows like The Ken Dodd Show, The Billy Cotton Bandshow and The Illustrated Weekly Hudd. Soon after the duo and several other writers who would go collaborate on a show that would change television history, both in the UK and beyond, Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
