Overview

In October 1969 the BBC broadcast the first episode of a new TV 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 episodes, 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 is the first of a series of pocket anthologies for which the Pythons have each made a personal choice of bits from the vast Python oevre. It contains such classic favorites as "The Lumberjack Song," "Albatross," and "Spam," as well as some less familiar gems.
