Here’s the book for anyone who has ever wanted to sing like a lumberjack; pined for a dead parrot; or gone for a silly walk. Combining outrageous humor,unbridled creativity, and surreal animation, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, and Eric Idle entertained millions and inspired generations of comedians as the forces behind Monty Python. This book celebrates the comedic phenomenon—from the original show for the BBC, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, to the benchmark film Life of Brian and today’s smash Broadway hit Spamalot—with biographies, photographs, and a filmography. This tribute to these pioneers of comedy is the definitive guide to all things Python.
