Overview

A celebration of the silly and enduring genius of the Monty Python team. Each volume in the Pocketfuls series is picked by a different Python and includes their best visual and verbal gags.

In October 1969 the BBC broadcast the first programme in a new series: Monty Python's Flying Circus, written and conceived by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin.Over the years the six of them followed this with another 44 extremely silly programmes, a German TV special, five full-length feature films, seven books, nine long-playing records and live stage shows that toured the UK and were seen in Canada and New York and at the Hollywood Bowl.

This new volume continues the series of pocket anthologies for which each of the Pythons makes a personal choice of favourite bits from the vast Python oeuvre. Terry Gilliam's selection contains classics of silliness that include "Why Accountancy is Not Boring""The German Lumberjack's Song" and "Stan's Right To Have Babies" as well as some startling and less familiar verbal and pictorial gems. The book comes complete with an embittered contribution by the sweet-natured Eric Idle.
