Over thirty years ago, a group of five Englishmen and one wayward American re-wrote the rules of comedy. Monty Python's Flying Circus, an unheralded collection of sketches, hilarities, inanities and animations first appeared on the BBC late one night in 1969. Its impact on the world has been felt ever since.This audio edition is a compilation of unique never-before-heard interviews with the Python team conducted by Bob McCabe while he researched the Python book, plus clips from the famous Monty Python sketches, including "The Parrot Sketch," "Nudge, Nudge, Wink, Wink," "Spam" and "Ministry of Silly Walks." Here is a unique glimpse at arguably the most important comic team of the modern age. Do you want Spam with that?
"A full literary meal about the irreverent Python troupe...By book's end, [listeners] will feel they know each Python intimately and marvel that six such different personalities could collaborate to produce such hilarious, scathingly subversive comedy." (Publishers Weekly)
"Consistently absorbing...disarmingly frank." (The New Yorker)
