The surviving Pythons here provide the definitive story of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" and the "genius" who created it. Over 30 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 on the world ever since. From its humble beginnings, it blossomed into the most influential movement in modern comedy. This biography is a look at arguably the most important comic team of the modern age, illustrated with 1000 photographs, many culled from the team's own personal collections, many more seen for the first time.
