Overview

Monty Python This book includes everything you ever wanted to know about the history and stars of the Python comedy team, from And Now For Something Completely Different to The Wind in the Willows via dead parrots, twelve monkeys and Basil the Rat. Now bigger, better, and more complete, it has been fully updated and includes all the recent efforts of the Python players, as well as some classic but little-known vintage work. Brand new material includes From Spam to Sperm, Python Night and Pythons; color and black-and-white illustrations bring the Python world to life and a chronology takes the continuing Python story right up to the present day.

The Monty Python Encyclopedia includes major biographies of Chapman, Cleese, Gilliam, Idle, Jones, and Palin. All their television, stage, publishing, radio and film ventures - as a team and apart - are included, as well as exclusive contributions from the members themselves. There is an in-depth study of the team's comic ideals, essential Python sketches and entries for other key players, notably Spike Milligan, Neil Innes and George Harrison. Enthusiasts and newcomers to the Python phenomena will find further reading, recordings, videos, and societies, plus a whole lot more.
