The Life of Python

Front Cover
Pavilion, Jan 26, 2007 - Biography & Autobiography - 224 pages
1 Review

The world of Python, its ear finely tuned to the absurd, was that rare beast: absolute originality.


This tribute to the inspired collective genius of John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and the late Graham Chapman, is based on personal reminiscences and exclusive interviews with each of them. It recounts, with many illustrations from the archives, their pre-Pythonic lives, their meeting, it's impact and the aftermath. The book is a faithful chronicle of the people and events who engendered a revolution in comedy.


This new, revised edition will include brand-new material to bring us fully up-to-date with the teams' eagerly anticipated new musical "Spamalot".
