Every script, every episode of the innovative, hilarious, and absurd Monty Python's Flying Circus, one of the most influential television series of all time, is include here, plus hundreds of annotations, behind-the-scenes stories, interviews, and more, as well as photographs, drawings, and Terry Gilliam's iconic artwork.Monty Python's Flying Circus is one of the most popular, important and oft-quoted comedy series of all time. Python's influence on comedy has been compared to the Beatles' influence on music. This landmark work collects the complete scripts for every one of the 45 episodes of Flying Circus: every silly setup, every clever conceit, every snide insult, and ever saucy aside from these classic skits, including 'The Ministry of Silly Walks,' 'The Dead Parrot,' 'Banter in the Cheese Shop,' 'Spam, the Funniest Joke in the World,' 'The Spanish Inquisition,' 'The Argument Clinic,' 'The Fish-Slapping Dance,' 'The Lumberjack Song,' and all the rest.Every script is thoroughly annotated with notes that cover the plethora of cultural, historical, and topical references touched upon in each sketch. Sidebars and commentary throughout include profiles of the principles -- Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, and John Cleese -- and interviews with the cast and crew; fascinating facts about technical concerns, set design, and shooting locations; insider stores from on and off the set, including arguments, accidents, and practical jokes; goofs and gaffes; and much more. Also included are thousands of stills and artwork from the shows.

Review:

Monty Python s Flying Circus s influence on television and on comedy is towering. This is truly the definitive book for fans of the show. So comprehensive, the level of detail is staggering. It will provide hour upon hour of pleasure and have you humming The Lumberjack Song and Spam Spam Spam all over again! --Sixty Plus Surfers

It's at times like this that I feel sorry for all those people who've bought Kindles or other electronic devices used for "reading books"... I believe this is the ultimate Monty Python book - around nine hundred pages of text, lavishly illustrated in full colour and containing every script and tons more stuff about the Pythons and the ground-breaking TV programme that turned British TV on its head in the 1960s. Black Dog have produced something extraordinary here - a magnificent tribute to the greatest comedy-sketch show that ever existed - there's so much material contained in this brilliant book that I can't help but make it my joint Nonfiction Book of the Month. A slice of TV heaven, a slice of cultural history the like of which has never been seen since - the inspiration for so many people, and so complete it's awesome. --Books Monthly

A book large enough to kill a parrot with, this collection of scripts for every episode of the Python TV show goes the whole hog, augmenting some of the greatest comedy ever written with reams of unseen pics and interesting notes. --Empire
