Back cover copy

Have you ever wanted to be a lumberjack? Had trouble with a dead parrot? Or gone for a silly walk? In 1969, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Eric Idle were brought together and a comedy group legend was born - Gwen Dibley's Flying Circus. Some time later, and a quick name rewrite, Monty Python was born, pioneering comedy that has amused and inspired generations. Their objective - making people laugh. Their skills - fear, surprise and a ruthless sense of humour. Revisit the Ministry of Silly Walks, the Swedish chemist and the Knights Who Say 'Ni', enjoy the show at Spamalot! and relive the gripping Upper Class Twit of the Year competition, in this, the book containing all material made by the Pythons ever! Fully updated, and including an episode guide and filmography, biographies of the Pythons and archive photographs, this is a glorious celebration of unmitigated and brilliant silliness.show more
