9780752864259: The Pythons' Autobiography by the Pythons

Over thirty years ago, a group of five Englishmen - and one wayward American - rewrote the rules of comedy. Monty Python's Flying Circus, an unheralded, previously unseen half-hour show of sketches, hilarities, inanities and animations, first appeared on the BBC late one night in 1969. Its impact has been felt the world over ever since. From its humble beginnings, it blossomed into the most influential movement in modern comedy. most important comic team of the modern age, with 64 pages of photographs, many culled from the team's own personal collections, and many more seen for the first time. This is the definitive word on all things Pythonesque.

Review :

'As this unique glimpse into the minds of Palin, Cleese, Idle, Gilliam, Jones and Chapman demonstrates, Monty Python's peculiar brand of animation and philosophy remains a one-off comic phenomenon that changed the course of comedy... Irreverent and hilarious... This energetic insight into their collaboration is a peculiarly Pythonesque testimony to the most influential British satire of all time.' OBSERVER 'There is ... some wonderful material in here. If you're the kind of person who entertains friends with word-perfect renditions of Python sketches, you'll love this book.' INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'This hefty tome includes individual biographies of the Pythons, making the tale of their rise and fall more surreal and interesting.' THE HERALD
