Description - Monty Python's Flying Circus: 50 Years of Hidden Treasures by Adrian Besley
This book delves into the official archives and recounts the history of the men who changed the face of comedy. The story is told through photographs, text, props and memorabilia, including hand-scribbled scripts, never-before-published cue sheets, artwork, unused presentation material, and more, offering the reader a unique peek into the world of these comic geniuses.
The 'Dead Parrot' sketch. 'The Lumberjack Song'. 'Argument Clinic'. 'Spam'. Monty Python's Flying Circus was packed with famous skits and classic one-liners, many of which are still globally recognized, from the Hollywood Bowl to the University of Woolloomooloo. Their irreverent humour is the yardstick by which others are judged and the adjective 'Pythonesque' has been part of the English language for years. And 50 years after first broadcast, Monty Python's Flying Circus is still attracting and amusing audiences around the world.
Contains a Foreword by the Pythons - including Graham Chapman from beyond the grave - and God.
